Fireside Chat: Build an Empowering Business Ecosystem with Lucas Rondez

The founder & CEO of nihub will give us valuable insights into his career, entrepreneurship and the potential of an “open ecosystem”.

In the West, everything is easy but nothing is possible. In China, everything is difficult but nothing is impossible.

What is written as a catch phrase on the homepage of nihub Innovation Center is meant sincerely? Without experience and knowledge of the market or the local language, China can be difficult to work in or with. However, the Chinese market is a landscape of unlimited, exciting opportunities that is second to none.

This is where nihub’s mission comes in: Their network, knowledge and experience are a support for a growing number of ambitious start-ups. nihub Innovation Center was founded in 2017 by Lucas Rondez from Switzerland. In the last two years, he and his team of six have helped more than 50 startups from Europe, USA, Israel, and other countries around the world to gain a foothold in China.

With the name component “ni”, which means “you” in Chinese, nihub is committed to providing advice tailored to specific needs. Their services range from business registration, investment or mentorship to scouting technologies and accelerate startups.

In collaboration with nihub and SwissCham, Swissnex in China presents a Fireside Chat (webinar) about Lucas Rondez and his entrepreneurial career. Lucas will share his background, his experiences, his failures, his decision to challenge himself, the use of the ecosystem to grow, and his knowledge about “open-ecosystem” to focus on innovation.
