IPIEC Global is an innovation and entrepreneurship contest connecting start-ups from all over the world to Chinese capital, enterprises, and industrial clusters. Recently, IPIEC GLOBAL 2018 Swiss Chapter officially kicked off. Four Swiss companies have been selected for the Semi-final contest. They will travel to China in December.


As an innovation connector between China and the world, WTOIP has been attaching great attention to Swiss scientific and technological innovation. WTOIP supported and participated in the opening ceremony of Venture Leaders China 2018 in June, matchmaking event in Shenzhen in September, as well as the Swiss Top 100 event. 

Through IPIEC GLOBAL, WTOIP managed to connect Swiss startups with Chinese capital, enterprises, and industrial clusters. In order to better support the projects to launch in China, WTOIP will conduct comprehensive launch guidance and market analysis for the Global Top 30, and organize the International Innovation Bootcamp in the coming December, bringing semi-finalists to Suzhou, Guangzhou, Xi’an, Kunming, Yuxi, Mianyang cities, covering major industrial and commercial cities in China,  to enable them to gain direct understanding and contact with various local parts of the country, and to get to know the latest applicable incentive policy for foreign technology projects. Through the contest, WTOIP has established a database of technology demands from leading enterprises, covering AI, big data, new materials, new energy, biomedicine, etc. Contestants with relevant technology are encouraged to match these demands.
