Our Community
The EMBA delegation from Fribourg School of Management HES-SO was in Shanghai at the beginning of April. Thanks to swissnex China's organization and network, the delegation had the opportunity to visit several Swiss companies in the region and got to interact with local entrepreneurs, learning from different perspectives regarding doing business in China. They also visited INNOSPACE+, an emerging startup incubator in Shanghai, where they were surprised by its infrastructures and its services - from apartments to co-working spaces.
