Nǐ hǎo! – Located in Shanghai, Tongji University is one of the first universities in China to promote innovation and systematically cultivate entrepreneurial talent. Over the past 20 years, it has established “the cultivation of sustainable, development-oriented, first-class talent” as its educational mantra. Through collaborative innovation between the university, the government and various companies, it provides excellent support for students in innovation and entrepreneurship education.

GESS itself will take place at Venture Valley, Tongji University’s successful entrepreneurship center, which was founded in 2013 to provide the missing link between the university campus and its Science & Technology Park. Venture Valley has signed contracts with 272 project teams, attracting over 48 million RMB in investments. Every year, Venture Valley hosts over 200 activities and provides services to more than 15,000 people. So, there is a lot to look forward to if you apply for GESS Shanghai!
