"Sino Track exceeded our expectations. We came to China to learn about the market, to learn about what it is like doing business here and of course networking. We got a nice and useful overview of it all and also learned from the experiences of other entrepreneurs. And the pitching competition was very exciting – and that was our first pitch! After the camp, we look forward to continuing working with the COMB+ team and the people we found here by networking. This is just the beginning of the journey. "

"The purpose of our one-week trip to Beijing was to get familiar with the special needs and requirements of the Chinese manufacturing ecosystem. COMB+ assisted us in getting crucial market information with the help of their passionate professionals and large network. Their services, such as access to top-level industrial experts and leaders, left a great impression on us. What separates COMB+ from its competitors, which mainly offer only working space and investment opportunities, is their all-in-one entrepreneurship service platform for globally acting startups. The most precious resource for startups is time. COMB+ is a reliable partner that saves startups' time through their professional incubation and acceleration services."
Jarl Matti Anttila, CMO & Co-Founder of Jakamo
"Sino Track Camp is a good way to get the first overview of the market and a sense of what is going on, how we actually should be entering the Chinese market and what the main concern points are. I think it is a vital tool to enter the market, because on your own, you
definitely cannot achieve what you can with a week here with COMB+.”
Märt Kroodo, CEO of 1oT
"I would say that the most important lesson I learned during the Sino Track Camp in Beijing is that trust and friendship is everything when it comes to business in China. That comes first - without that, you can't have the business. Then the business part, Sino Track has helped us learn a lot as well. I think that Sino Track holds everything inside: it's great, it's fun, it's exhausting, it sucks every single drop of juice out of you, it teaches you, it gives you.”
Tomi Ek, CEO of Oviku
"China is the number one country for our company. Besides the great market potential, we also like the Chinese way of doing things fast. In our minds, China is the best place to go global. To go big, you need to find the right strategic partners from the beginning - I think that is the key to success for a lot of startups that want to go global with their innovations. I was thinking before, you know, does it make sense to attend? I have been to China many times, 8 times this year, and we already had some contacts. But I have been really positively surprised by the program. We have been very happy with the help and contacts that we have received through Sino Track."
Mervi Heinaro, CEO of Flexound
"Sino Track Camp was even more than I expected! We made invaluable connections and had several productive meetings. And it was really interesting to learn about local resources and HR practices. We also gained critical understanding of how new media play a huge role in marketing in China. We were even able to visit a local hospital and see the situation for ourselves and gain more confidence in the local market. Sino Track actually makes a difference, and I am just really happy to be here with COMB+!"
