There is a strong interest between companies and investors on either side of the Pacific to engage in business with each other and in turn bring innovative products and services to the market. However, limited information on consumer demand and market opportunities, fragmented investment resources, and challenging language and cultural barriers can make the cross-border process complex and difficult. InnoSTARS is here to help overcome these obstacles. The InnoSTARS Competition was launched in 2017 to help innovative US technology companies link up with Chinese resources, enter the Chinese market and connect U.S. innovative technologies and products to Chinese enterprises and institutions. InnoSTARS is not just another pitch competition, it is a China-readiness competition + coaching + community. By participating in InnoSTARS, U.S. entrepreneurs can gain valuable China-ready coaching from mentors, advisors and connections with other kindred spirits in the InnoSTARS community, as well as access to high-caliber Chinese talent, partners and investors. It is an excellent platform for technology companies to leverage significant resources from China to accelerate their growth and to expand their market potential.
