VBCII’m excited to co-lead a group of 25 young entrepreneurs and innovators from Australia, the US and Canada in a tour of China that will provide invaluable expert mentoring, tech business exposure and the chance to expand your network.

Hosted by The Victorian Business Confucius Institute, the tour is a rare opportunity for young leaders across startups, technology and international business to make incredible connections, expand their skills and work with one of the best startup mentors on the planet.

Along with China mentor Jason Yin, the tour will visit Beijing and Shinzeng and will include visits to tech giants such as Alibaba, Huawei, Tencent, Xiaomi and DiDi where participants will gain exposure to advanced management practices.

There are a limited number of scholarships available to attend, which cover all costs within China.
