Invitation to attend

The New South Wales Government's Department of Industry & Investment has contracted ANZA Technology Network, in collaboration with Advance, to deliver the Gateway to China Program, with the objective of piloting a new means for accelerating sustainable access to the China market by New South Wales innovative companies.
This is a pilot program with a competitive selection process and there are only five positions available.
The Gateway to China Pilot Program consists of:

  • A 1-day workshop to be held in Sydney in April 2010 to outline the Gateway to China features, benefits and entry requirements and to provide a basis for selection of successful applicants.

  • A 7-day intensive China program sector to be held in June 2010 (based in Shanghai) to link New South Wales innovative companies with assigned mentors, alliance and channel partners and financiers.

  • A 12-month light-touch follow-up support program, building on the China experience, linking both China mentors and ANZA/Advance.

The Gateway to China Pilot Program is valued at over $20,000 per company. Due to the support of our founding partner, NSW Department of Industry and Investment, the all-inclusive cost for companies in this pilot program is $5,000. This program provides the companies selected to participate with a unique opportunity to enter the China market and to achieve valuable and sustainable market and business development outcomes. 

Selection Process
