The 2019 InnoSTARS competition is a platform that connects U.S.-based technology companies with Chinese investors, corporates, and strategic partners. Organized by the U.S.-China Innovation Alliance (UCIA) and China Science and Technology Exchange Center (CSTEC), this competition aims to provide U.S.-based technology companies a better understanding of the market opportunities available in China.
Why should companies compete?
Qualified preliminary winners will be extended an invitation to join the 2019 China road-show to compete in the InnoSTARS industry finals, and potentially even the finals. The road-show will include introductions to Chinese corporates, universities, regulators, and investors interested in U.S. innovation. Industry finalists’ round-trip China airfare, hotels, and meals are covered by InnoSTARS, and winners receive cash prizes and media recognition.
