Australia Post and Alibaba Cloud get behind free course for exporters

If you're looking to sell goods and services to China, this free course might be of interest.

Chinese Internet giant Alibaba Cloud is involved in a new, free course for Australian businesses wanting to do business in China.

The seven-week China Canvas Challenge course begins on February 25, 2019, and will be offered by Sydney co-working startup Haymarket HQ. The company has partnered with Alibaba Cloud, Australia Post and the Australia China Council to offer the course.

The course will provide “top-quality guidance from successful entrepreneurs with hands-on experience in the Australia-China market,” Haymarket HQ general manager Duco van Breemen said in a blog on the company’s web site. The company is also pitching the course as a way to make contact with other entrepreneurs.

Participants will also get the opportunity to pitch their business idea to judges in Sydney, and the winning pitch will receive a “business exploration trip” to China.

The course material covers market positioning, distribution, business models, branding and legal and regulatory issues, among other topics.

Participants will use the Lean Canvas one-page business plan template, which is designed to make business plans easier to create and easier for others to read.
