Started in 2015, the CEIBS eLab has become an important incubator for entrepreneurial ventures created within the CEIBS community. Through the IDEA Challenge Programme, 50 business ventures (14 in Batch 1 and 36 in Batch 2) initiated by MBA, EMBA, GEMBA and alumni have successfully entered different stages of incubation, including Idea, Design, Evaluation and Acceleration. The ventures represent the newest generation of CEIBS innovators and cover a variety of sectors and business models. All will benefit from a new investment initiative led by two CEIBS EMBA alumni Mr. Wang Zhonghui and Mr. Yu Jianghong whose ChairMan Fund will provide support to the CEIBS eLab. In March 3, 2016, CEIBS eLab concluded its Inaugural MBA Entrepreneurship Bootcamp where 60 participants completed three instructional modules: Innovation Strategy, Entrepreneurship Practices and Venture Capital Connection. The venue: the CEIBS eLab headquarters at the CEIBS Shanghai Campus.
