Connecting industry experts and university students

University of Michigan (UM)-Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) Joint Institute (JI) inherits the strengths of two great universities of the world. While SJTU is a pioneer in entrepreneurship education in China, global leadership of UM is well-known. The JI Centre For Entrepreneurship (CFE) along with partners from SJTU units and industry organized the “Entrepreneurship Week” from Sept 4-7 2018 in Shanghai.

The sessions involved in-depth immersion experiences, field visits to incubators/startups and lectures by experts from all over the world.
