Right now the best way for you to get create your own content is to join the discussion on the General Wechat-group Greater Bay – Finest Bay.
If you have not joined yet ask me to invite you there. My Wechat id. is santerituovila
Update on the Finest Bay Area goes to Greater Bay Area trip:
  • Over 30 people joined so far from Finland, Netherlands, Chech Republic, Sweden and Japan.
  • Represented are now: education, gaming, health tech, smart industry, mobility, laser.
  • Our Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Hong Kong partners have begun to work on the requests eleven participating companies have sent us.
The main program will be networking dinners, meetups, lunches and visits to conferences and innovation hubs.
This program is not mandatory to join and there is free time for you to design the program by yourself. To help you to succeed in this, we will arrange co-working spaces in each city where we can stay during the day and where you can invite people to come to meet you.
-To make transportation convenient, we will arrange a bus at least for the Shenzhen-Hong Kong border transfer.
Also for the innovation hub visit on in Hong Kong on August 9th.
We warmly suggest using the bus since it is hard to catch taxis in China without Didi-ride-hailing application
-The fee for the bus and evening dinners are required to pay individually by participants.
-We will launch a matchmaking app with Mesensei for pre-matching purposes. Registration opening soon.

In case of any questions should come to your mind, do not hesitate to ask them directly from me.
