Brent Pearce attends China Millennial Project (CAMP)
Trendwise Global Sales Director, Brent Pearce pitched Trendwise to participants in this year’s China Australia Millenial Project (CAMP) at XNode Startup Accelerator & Coworking Space in Shanghai.
CAMP’s flagship program is a unique, summit-based innovation program that brings together 150 Chinese and Australian millennials to design innovative business solutions to industry issues in the hope of creating their own cross-cultural startup.
Some great questions and engagement was received from the participants in various industries and sectors in both Australia and China. From data scientists to transport planners, the interest in how Trendwise can be applied to their roles and industry was great to see.
