The Chinese Entrepreneur Program: The Next Big Frontier
Startups and entrepreneurs in China are coming to fruition.
As the government begins a massive push to support new companies and startups, there’s a growing desire for new programs to help entrepreneurs navigate their way into the global economy.
We spoke with the founder of the Chinese Entrepreneurship Program, Liu Zhijun, to find out what entrepreneurs can expect.
In the past, the Chinese government has struggled to recruit and keep young people interested in entrepreneurship.
Liu says they’ve also struggled to keep them on track.
In a new initiative called the Chinese Enrichment Fund, Liu will launch a new program that will provide funding for startups to launch and expand their businesses.
This will give entrepreneurs a leg up in getting into the international marketplace.
To date, China has received over $3.5 billion in support from the fund.
The fund, according to Liu, is designed to help “young people who are interested in opening their own businesses and start-ups.”
Liu says that the fund has so far received more than $1.2 billion.
While the money is being funneled to a variety of startups and small businesses, the money will also be given to businesses that have been established.
According to Liu and a Chinese government spokesperson, the fund will not just give startups a leg-up, but also give entrepreneurs confidence that they will get a fair shot at landing the financing.
The government spokesperson says the program will help “a young entrepreneur get into the market with the right attitude and skills.”
According to the spokesperson, a startup that is founded and grows to $10 million will receive $1 million in the fund, while a startup with a $2 million revenue will receive an additional $1,000.
Liu told Next Big Futures that this will be the first time in history that the Chinese Government has given money to a startup to get a foothold in the international market.
We believe that this is a good opportunity for young entrepreneurs to have a fair chance at getting the funding.
Liu said that the funding will help start-up businesses and entrepreneurs find financing, because they have to spend time getting their idea off the ground.
“They need to invest time and money in their company,” Liu said.
“And that can be a long-term investment.”
Liwan says the fund is also designed to allow entrepreneurs to make money in the future, as the government will help fund the cost of their startup and get the profits into a savings account for them later.
The fund is currently being run by China’s Ministry of Finance, but Liu says that they are working on expanding the fund to include other countries, such as Australia, New Zealand, and the United States.
As for how these new programs will help startups and entrepreneurs, Liu says the government wants to get more people involved in the startup ecosystem.
“The government is hoping that we will encourage more people to participate in the ecosystem, so they can earn more money in an uncertain environment,” Liu told us.
“In order to do this, we need more people, so we will work with a lot of partners.
We are looking at how to help start companies and entrepreneurs get into more countries.”
The Chinese government is also working on a new type of government-backed venture fund called the “Entrepreneurship Fund,” which is aimed at helping entrepreneurs find the financing they need to create a company and bring it to market.
According to Liu the government has already awarded some of these fund’s grants to about 70 startups.
In addition to the government support, the Entrepreneurs Fund is also looking to partner with other governments to help fund their programs.
Liu said the Chinese venture fund’s aim is to “help startups in the country reach their full potential.”
While the Chinese state has not been as supportive as it should be of startups, Liu said they have already started working on ways to support these new startups.
She says that some government programs are already starting to help Chinese startups with financing.
“We want to work with the governments of other countries and partner with them,” Liu explained.
“One of the ways we are looking is to partner and collaborate with them in helping to get them access to more funding, so that they can reach their potential.”
As for the future of the program, Liu is not quite sure what the Chinese plan is, but he said they want to expand the program to other countries.
He said that they’re looking at ways to expand to other sectors.
