INSPIRO Fellowship Program

Application Deadline: 12/01/2021

The pandemic has unexpectedly slowed down the progress of globalization. However, the solution to every major issue we face today, be it global warming, public health crisis, AI ethics, cultural conflicts…, relies on the continuous exploration of cutting-edge technology and collaborations across national borders. 

INSPIRO Fellowship is a one-year program that brings together 50 outstanding tech entrepreneurs from China and Europe, forming a community where entrepreneurs share ideas and spark conversations about business and technology, promote technologies that generate positive social impact, and eventually create more possibilities for business partnership between China and Europe in the post-pandemic era. We will enroll 50 outstanding tech entrepreneurs from China and Europe for the 21/22 cohort, from December 2021 to September 2022. Fellows will be able to have conversations with high-level executives from multinational companies, government officials from China and Europe, leaders of chambers of commerce in both regions and the partners of venture capitals.
