At present, it has established or co-founded overseas innovation and entrepreneurship institutions in more than ten countries and regions around the world, established partnerships with more than 100 famous universities and innovation incubators around the world, and cooperated with many of the world's leading research institutions. It has opened up channels to introduce the innovative entrepreneurial projects and high-end talents.For young entrepreneurs with entrepreneurial dreams, in the early stage of entrepreneurship, they often face the situation that they cannot land the project due to shortage of funds. We should collect social forces, give team financial support , support the rapid growth of the project, and provide a broad platform for entrepreneurs to help them step by step realize their dreams.
