Green Startups and TusStar (Suzhou) co-hosted an accelerator camp for green startups for the third year in a row. This year, the two-day accelerator camp ran from April 19th to 20th. TusStar provides a widespread resource network and Green Startups provides expertise regarding the green industry. Since 2017, both companies together have helped many entrepreneurs by providing different services and guidance. Hopefully, in the future, Green Startups and TusStar can continue helping startups together.
Around 20 green startups came to Suzhou from cities including Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Suzhou, Shandong, Hefei, and Qinghai. In the two-day accelerator camp, the startups received comprehensive training and guidance from industry experts and investors. The camp provided entrepreneurship courses, workshops, and discussions.

Feedback from Attendees
Zhu Yuanxian, Founder of Home Garden: “In the past, most of the training camps invited mentors to talk about relevant topics. But this accelerator program allowed mentors to go into a more in-depth explanation and analysis regarding the green industry. At the same time, the accelerator camp strengthened communication between us and the mentors.”
Li Yiming, Founder of LinkDotter: “I learned a lot today. This type of brainstorming allowed us to get to know each other and further understand the issues that we’re currently facing. Discussions are very practical as we are able to put forward solutions.”
Into the Future
Green Startups will continue to pay close attention to the progress of the entrepreneur projects and actively connect green startups with different resources. In addition, we will strengthen communication with TusStar to provide services for entrepreneurs and grow alongside them.
