Program

Ten start-ups will be selected for participation in the Market access tour se to take place in the spring of 2022. The program is funded, in large parts, through sponsorships from ScandiChina in collaboration with Nihub Innovation Centre. We cover the expenses for program activities, travels, and hotels. The only additional cost is an administration fee of € 500 per participant. Considering that the real value of the tour regularly is in excess of € 6 000, it is a very generous price.
