What is NewCo?
NewCo Shanghai is back on October 24! Chinaccelerator has a mission to identify, celebrate, and connect the engines of positive change in society. To that end, we’re bringing corporate executives, innovation enthusiasts, and top talent to China’s most game-changing internet companies.
Driven by the concept of “Get Out to Get In”, we encourage attendees to get out of their comfort zone, and dive into the disruptive tech world by touring five cutting-edge companies in one day. Knowledge, connections, inspiration: we offer all the resources you need to get ahead in this fast changing market.
NewCo is a new kind of event experience. You can think of it as part open studio tour, part business conference, with the vibe of a music festival. The best part is that you select the companies you want to explore, and by seeing their home office firsthand and meeting face-to-face with founders and CEOs, you’ll learn how they drive transformation through technology, teambuilding, and leadership.
Get inside the world’s most intriguing companies to learn, connect, and celebrate.
Stay tuned, more hosts coming soon!
