Would recommend participating InnoSTARS

Heather Potters

Vice Chairman of PharmJet

"Without the InnoSTARS support, we would not have nearly as many potential Chinese partners and investors interested in what PharmJet is doing. I think it’s a fantastic opportunity for matchmaking and I think it’s a fantastic opportunity for companies to see other technologies in different fields."

"InnoSTARS roadshow in China proved to be an excellent crash course to introduce us to the Chinese entrepreneurship community and begin building relationships. We found the events to be immersive and the connections to be meaningful. We highly recommend startups considering the Chinese market to participate in this event. "
