What is a China Canvas?

Participants will aim to complete a 'China Canvas' during the course of the program.

C3’s custom 'China Canvas' is based on the highly successful Lean Canvas and will help you examine the fundamentals of entering the China market.

To receive an example of a completed canvas, please sign up to our mailing list.

Why China?

China is one of Australia's largest trading partners and plays a big role in our economy.

It's also a challenging market to enter, which is why C3 aims to help regular SMEs and entrepreneurs understand and capitalise on their opportunities.

Who is eligible for the program?

C3 is open to anyone. We welcome individual entrepreneurs or SME managers interested in expanding into China or exploring market opportunities.

You don't have to be a company founder or have experience doing business in China. 

Can more than one person from my company participate in the program?

Yes. You may register more than one person from your company. C3 is suitable for companies that want to upskill teams or staff.

Does my business need an ABN?

No. The program is open to anyone regardless of the stage of their business, company industry, or business background and experience.

How labour intensive is C3?

C3 is an interactive and self-paced learning experience. The more you put in to it, the more you will get out of it.

Each module consists of a series of videos totalling 1.5 hours, accompanied with optional written components. We recommend participants spend an additional 2 hours a week on completing tasks.

Is there homework?

Each module contains a series of questions that are designed to test your understanding and help you develop your market-entry plan. Completing these questions are optional but highly recommended. 

C3 assignment submissions and feedback are currently not available at this time.
