  • WE HELP STARTUPS, ENTREPRENEURS & CORPORATE INNOVATORS BUILD THE NEXT BIG THING

    We believe that in China today, successful innovation is a direct result of agility, speed and collaboration. Through continuous iteration, lean methodologies and by truly opening up – innovation can be brought to market much quicker.

     

    We empower innovators by building connections between startups, government, corporates and academia.

     

    Startups are always looking for ways to scale through corporate assets, customers, channels and their brand. Corporates, on the other hand, are eager to innovate quicker with more impact.

     

    XNode exists to bridge this gap. Bringing together the best of both worlds. Empowering innovators to create new innovations at lightning speed.

  • OUR UNFAIR ADVANTAGES

    Chinese roots

    2

    We are pioneering corporate acceleration in China

    We‘re proud to be pioneering open innovation and corporate acceleration in China.

    3

    We operate and move

    like a startup

    However we have a strong understanding of the corporate world. Our team is composed of former corporate folks with entrepreneurial experiences.

    4

    Our programs are highly

    needs and challenges. A one solution fit
    all in terms of acceleration does not work.

    in startups

    There is no bias or conflict of interest when bridging startups with corporates.

    6
