beSUCCESS Partners with GWC China To Support The Asian Startup Ecosystem
March 6, 2013


beSUCCESS is proud to announce a new and powerful alliance with GMIC Beijing and The GWC, that promises to add exceptional value to the startup ecosystem in North East Asia, bringing together two of the leading startup brands in Asia. GMIC is China’s flagship Mobile Internet conference, which will be held on May 6th & 7th and is organized in collaboration with the GWC, one of the most established and ambitious startup networking platforms in China. GMIC will be a few days after our own startup conference, beLAUNCH, on May 1st & 2nd, and partnering to progress our parallel visions is an obvious decision.

We have absolute faith that this cooperation will be mutually beneficial for the startup and tech communities in China and Korea, as well as for global startups looking to enter the lucrative markets of North East Asia. On the partnership, Calvin Smith, Director of International Relations at GWC explains, “The Korean market is an important market for our strategic growth, and we at GWC are very pleased to be working with beSUCCESS to mutually forge ties between China and Korea, as well as with the startup scene globally.” Nathan Millard, Global Director of beSUCCESS supported believes that “With our combined vision and capabilities, we become one of the most powerful forces driving the startup revolution in Asia and we are excited about the opportunities that lie ahead”.

Founded on March 27, 2008, the GWC (Great Wall Club) is a platform for its members and clients to develop trusted relationships with other mobile Internet industry leaders, learn market leading strategies, promote their initiatives and ultimately grow their mobile Internet business in key developing markets throughout the world. This is accomplished through events, executive trips, reports, and consulting. Headquartered in Beijing, GWC has offices in the USA and Japan, as well as representative offices in Singapore, Taiwan and Finland.

We will be working to support each other’s events and engaging in a number of Asia-wide collaborations going forward, including GWC’s G-Trip, which brings together top startup CEOs from around the world to network and learn about the ecosystem and market potential in China, a country that perhaps holds the most exciting opportunities in over the next few years (more announcements on this to follow).

The teams of beSUCCESS and GWC understand the high value of a strong global network in the pursuit of international startup success and together will be working to build strong relationships with the global ecosystem, particularly in NE Asia and the US. Leveraging the combined networks of beSUCCESS and GWC in Korea, China, Japan and the US, the partnership will help fast-track the visibility of Asian startups on the world scene.
