Pang Xiaowei, founded the Chinese leading retail business portal Linkshop back in 2001. In 2004, Pang invested Edushi which offers web business solution for enterprise customers; He left Edushi in the year of 2009 and started TiSiWi, the startup incubator (Y Combinator-liker) at the end of 2010 in Hangzhou.

In the email Pang wrote to me, he said, “the accelerator program is inspired by Y Combinator which I really respect. I hope TiSiWi to have the same success in China.” Any startup (with no more than 4 people) can now submit its project to TiSiWi and the deadline is set to 15th July. The project plans will be carefully reviewed by TiSiWi team, and the accepted project owners at this stage will be interviewed by phone for the second round. During the 25th to 30th July, the startups pass the second round (30 startups expected) will be invited to Hangzhou to present their project to the TiSiWi in person. 15 startups are expected to join the accelerator program in the end. They are required to stay in Hangzhou for 3 months fully focusing on their ideas, and there will be a Demo day in the end of October when the startups are given to chance to present their work to investors/VCs.

The famous Beijing-based startup incubator Innovation Works also runs its own accelerator program. Pang said in his email,
