We will visit Shenzhen, Beijing and Shanghai and companies like One Plus, Didi Chuxing (China's equivalent to Uber), Tantan (China's equivalent to Tinder) and Mobike (station-free bikes). The purpose of the trip is to gain inspiration and increased knowledge of entrepreneurship and innovation from both world-leading companies and local entrepreneurs.

– It will be incredibly fun to represent my university in China. I hope I can build networks and open doors for students at Luleå University of
