Focused on the early stages of innovation and entrepreneurship, especially the formation and refinement of ideas, “JITRI Cup” XJTLU Global “Dream-Chasers ” Entrepreneurial Competition aims to inspire college students to pay attention to social issues and business opportunities, and guide them to carefully refine their ideas. Unlike other competitions, this competition does not require participants to provide product prototypes or market feedback for later stages of their business plans, truly realizing the concept of everyone’s participation and giving every college student the opportunity to try focusing on society and refining their ideas.

In addition to providing a platform for college students to showcase their ideas, the competition also carries a profound educational mission. It aims to become an important carrier for exploring new models of innovation and entrepreneurship education at home and abroad, encouraging students to focus on real society and refine their ideas based on it. Through the competition, it promotes the transformation of innovation and entrepreneurship education from traditional knowledge and theory orientation to a more emphasis on innovation and entrepreneurship literacy orientation.

Moreover, the competition is committed to building an ecosystem for innovation and entrepreneurship learning and education. It is not only a long-term communication platform for students interested in innovation and entrepreneurship, but also a venue for teachers engaged in innovation and entrepreneurship education to exchange ideas and learn from each other. It is also a bridge for cooperation and interaction between college students’ innovation and entrepreneurship activities and relevant industry institutions.

It is worth mentioning that the competition attaches great importance to internationalization and warmly welcomes the participation of domestic and international students. This not only provides participants with a broader perspective but also greatly facilitates international exchanges and cooperation in innovation and entrepreneurship education.
