The i5 in China Program helps companies expand business globally. Our specialty is US companies entering China and China companies entering the US, but the bottom line is we simplify and accelerate global access.
Our technology commercialization program combines the disciplines of Business, Engineering, and Intellectual Property Law with our own Accelerated Commercialization Process (ACP), creating a powerful technology commercialization accelerator. i5 will multiply your efforts by training your team using your own project with our industry-experienced consultants and coaches using students from top-tier schools such as Baylor University, USST, Petra Christian University, and the University of Nottingham, Ningbo.
Leveraging outside resources--Don’t lose focus on your current business projects
Many companies have identified a list of emerging technological innovations. However, with the limited company resources, this may distract from the business at hand. By engaging a project team from i5, you can continue to focus on managing your company, while a team of advanced business, engineering and law students and industry experts put their efforts and skills toward your next new venture.
Provide benefits to students from the U. S. and China
Working on a project for your company, students will develop science and technology insight, business savvy and global cultural competence within the high-immersion environment. In past years, many sponsors found a good fit from the student interns and hired them as employees.
i5 can help discover and plan:
- How customers think
- How market channels operate
- How intellectual property is protected
- How to find trustworthy partners
