Global Entrepreneurship Competition FAQ

  • What is the format of the competition?

    The competition adapts a pitch competition format – a 4-minute presentation by the founder followed by 4 minutes of Q&A with the judges. A total of 29 projects will be qualified into the Global Final, including 5 winning projects from the Overseas Zone, 16 winning projects from the Domestic Zone, and 8 winning projects from the Invitational Tracks.

    The Global Final consists of “pitch competition” and “investors matching-making”, which finally decides the champions and runner-ups for the Startup and Growth groups.

  • With so many tracks provided here, which one should I sign up for?

    First of all, you can choose your track according to the industry of your projects, including “New Consumption Track”, “Health & Medicine Track”, “Data Intelligence Track” and “Digital Economy Track (Chaoyang Area of Beijing Free Trade Zone)” .

    Secondly, if you want to expand your market outside Beijing, and wish to connect to more local settings through the OTEC platform, you can sign up for the City Invitational Competitions, including:

    “New Sports Track” in Beijing/Yanqing/Zhangjiakou. The road show competition will take place in Chaoyang District, Beijing. Afterwards, we will arrange a small trip visiting Zhangjiakou, China.

    “New Consumption Industries Track” in the Central Region (Changsha). The road show competition as well as match-making event with the VCs will both take place in Changsha.

    “Future Cities Track” in Xiong-an. The road show competition will take place in Chaoyang District, Beijing. Afterwards, we will arrange a small trip visiting Xiong-an, China.

    “One Belt One Road Track” in Kunming. The road show competition will take place in Changsha.

    Lastly, for those who have already signed up for HICOOL, and would love to know more about the business environment, talent policy and innovation ecology of Chaoyang District through our OTEC platform – please feel free to sign up for the “HICOOL Startup Projects Special Track”. There will be a roadshow competition, and you will get exposure and get connected to more VCs and other valuable resources located in Chaoyang through the OTEC platform.

  • I am not an overseas returnee entrepreneur. Can I still apply for the competition?

    Yes, you can. The participants for this year's global entrepreneurship competition will be divided into “Startup Group” and “Growth Group”. The “Growth Group” participants aren’t required to have an overseas background. Meanwhile, participants applying for the “Start-up group” must have previous overseas background – if you don’t but your co-founders have overseas background, you can encourage them to apply instead!

  • What do I need to do/prepare for the competition?

    All you need to have is an idea. You need to turn your idea into a business plan and apply via the link above. During the competition, you’re required to make a 4-minute presentation followed by a 4-minute Q&A with the judges, that’s all.

  • Can I apply for multiple tracks with the same project?

    No, you can only take part in one track, so make sure to choose your track carefully and wisely.

  • How to inquire if I have any questions about the application?

    Contact Zhang 84409718 or e-mail otec@tocbd.gov.cn for any inquiry.

  • What is the relationship between “Phoenix Plan” and OTEC?

    The expert's review for the startup projects of Phoenix Plan and “OTEC Global Entrepreneurship Competition” are carried out simultaneously.

    The winning projects of OTEC will be awarded the “Phoenix Plan Pass Card” prize and are eligible to apply for “Startup Expenses Pass Card”, “Youth Elite Projects Pass Card”, “Industry Leading Talents Projects Pass Card” and “Leading Talent Innovation and Entrepreneurship Pass Card”. Note that the pass card service is only valid for 3 years.

    Continuing the "competition-based evaluation" model, after being reviewed by the experts of the OTEC Global Entrepreneurship Competition and obtaining the qualification of the “Phoenix Project Pass Card”, those eligible through the “recommendation system” will receive corresponding recognitions and funding. Among them, those who apply for the Phoenix Plan “Start-up Startup Fee” program must first register for the OTEC Global Entrepreneurship Competition.

  • I have already received a startup fee under Phoenix Plan. Can I apply for the competition with a new project this year?

    Yes, you can certainly participate in the competition, but you should no longer be eligible for the funding from the "Phoenix Plan Pass Card" for the start-up expenses. In principle, the same applicant can only get the "Phoenix Plan" start-up funding once.

  • I took part in the OTEC Global Entrepreneurship Competition before. Can I still apply this year? If I can, may I use the previous account number? What should I do if I forget the account number and password?

    Yes, you can. Whether the project is new or the same as last time, you can still take part in the competition as long as the project fits the requirements. But you MUST register a new account.

  • What is the deadline for the application? How do I know if the application is successful?

    The application deadline is August 1st, 2021. Time and location for the competitions will be notified by the competition organizing committee. Please keep in touch for more updates.
