CEIBS eLab and nakedHub Host Demo Day

May 19th, 2017. Shanghai —CEIBS eLab teamed up with nakedHub to host the first CEIBS eLab X nakedHub Demo Day. Today’s event brought together entrepreneurs and investors from both incubators to successfully create a platform where resources from both sides could connect and explore future collaboration. Venture capitalists from Peeli Ventures, Prosperity Fund, TongHao Capital, Yuqian Angel Fund and Zhen Fund participated in the event, raising challenging questions and offering insightful advice to entrepreneurs who attended.

First Respond kicked off the event by sharing their success story.  Founded in 2010 by a group of CEIBS graduates, First Respond is the very first Certified B Corporation in mainland China and a leading Chinese social enterprise dedicated to delivering exceptional quality first aid training and solutions to the private and public sectors. (B Corps are certified to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.) First Respond’s hope is that “mutual aid” will become the norm in Chinese society, and the company aims to create a network of citizens whose role as first responders will help more people faced with emergencies.  

During the roadshow session of today’s event, BizBuzz, CWine, GroupMall, Ifire Information Technology, International Executives Mentorship Program, Persona, Wan Xu Technology, and Whole Leadership Corporation gave the audience invaluable insight into their ventures. Persona’s cofounder, Jay HA (CEIBS GEMBA 2014), flew in from Seoul to support the Demo Day collaboration and to motivate other entrepreneurs through the story of how he successfully launched his own start-up in China. He is vivid proof that there are opportunities out there for growth as long as you believe in your venture.
