1. “Success is riddled with crashes. But you haven’t failed until you’ve given up – or died”
Ishay Green, quoted above, is a serial entrepreneur who experienced it all. He embarked on international companies, obtained funding, sold for less, sold for more, got booted out by the board, got on comfortably with his co-founders, got along not so comfortable with his co-founding fathers – and most importantly, never gave up.
Ishay’s stories and insights are relevant to every entrepreneur, and we believe everyone should come and meet this exceptional figure.
2. THero and Brinc are bringing the “Are You China Ready?” global contest to 9 cities across the USA, Europe, and the Asia Pacific regions to see who has what it takes to make it in China! The contest hopes to boost entrepreneurship and innovation and facilitate the introduction of local startups from around the world to China. Out of scores of Israeli startups which have applied to the competition, and the additional dozens that will have applied by the 15-Sep deadline, ten will be selected to make headway to the semi-finals and pitch. At this special event, organized by the local Startup Grind chapter, a panel of judges will hear the pitches and select three startups which will win an all-expenses-paid (Visa, Flights & Hotels) trip to Guangzhou, China, exposure to Chinese government officials, local investors, and distribution partners, and hands-on training workshops with Brinc, before ultimately pitching at the finals to win a prize of $25,000.
Do you desire to examine real-life examples of market entry to China? Because you believe you already recognize what it needs to succeed in China and can predict which startups will be chosen? Then don’t miss this awesome event!
