Twenty MIB and IMBA students from the Antai College of Economics and Management at Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) visited the Knowledge and Innovation Community (KIC) in Shanghai's Yangpu district on Nov 11.

Wang Lin, chief business officer of Shanghai Innovation Labs (Sinnolab), briefed the students on how Sinnolab helps to accelerate the growth of small and medium-sized foreign enterprises in China.

Mei Chenfei, founder of the startup incubator Stories, shared some memories of how he managed the difficulties and challenges during the initial startup stage, perfected his thinking during the development stage, and maintained a good relationship with his partners.

The two also answered students' questions, such as "How can a foreigner start an undertaking in China?"

Their last stop was Innospace. Here the students got an insight into the high-tech company's business patterns and services during its early stages, learning from their startup experience.

The university's Antai College of Economics and Management often organizes job alert activities for overseas students, including enterprise visits, internships and job fairs, to help them learn more about the Chinese commercial environment and improve their competitiveness.
