Description

The event

Have you watched Dragons’ Den and wanted to be part of the show? This month at Startup4Chinese, you get an exciting opportunity to do that by joining our Dragons’ Gate Pitch Competition on December 19th!

The name Dragons Gate is inspired by a popular Chinese saying: Carps Jump Over the Dragon Gate (鲤鱼跳龙门). If a carp successfully makes the jump, it is transformed into a powerful dragon. Therefore, We named this event Dragons’ Gate as a metaphor for courage, perseverance, and accomplishment. We hope to use this competition to inspire attendees, while they may have fun and engage with talented entrepreneurs in Toronto.

有没有看过最火的创业投资真人秀《龙穴》?是不是幻想过自己有一天也能成为其中的参赛选手?在这个月Startup 4 Chinese @ GTA的活动上,机会来了!欢迎你加入我们12月19日的“龙门创业小赛”!!

“龙门”一词,来自古老的谚语:鲤鱼跳龙门。如果鲤鱼成功跃过龙门,它就能变成法力无边的龙。因此,此次活动命名为“龙门”,以此寓意勇气、坚持和成功。我们希望这次活动可以激励更多参与者,让大家可以与多伦多众多才华横溢的创业者们接触,并享受创造的乐趣。
