I’m looking into incubators to launch a AI-related startup in Shanghai.
I’m having difficulties finding the official ones, that work with the SH entry-exit bureau to make me eligible for the entrepreneur visa which would be a tremendous help for me to start my company there.
I know STJU’s Science Park is one, and I believe K-Tech as well. However, I was wondering if there were other incubators that could help with the entrepreneur visa process.
I would recommend looking into Xnode Accelerator in Shanghai. They have three locations in Shanghai but main office is a stone-throw away from Jing’an temple.
Not sure if Xnode specifically handles entrepreneur visas but they are known to help foreign SMEs enter into China.
As far as I am aware, if you graduated from a Chinese university, you’ll have an easier time getting the entrepreneur visa. If not, you probably need a masters/phd degree from one of the top 100 universities in the world or something…
I just checked with someone from Xnode and unfortunately they cannot help you but the person said you can check these two resources out:
