The STAY Partnership

Attracting talent and startups

STAY is a partnership that attracts international startups and talents. Startups play a key role in innovation, creativity and economic growth in societies and strengthen the national and global economy significantly.

STAY launched on the 20th August 2018 in Copenhagen. In addition to the main theme of attracting talents and startups, this STAY event also hosts an exhibition for Chinese designers. Have a look here for more information about 'Design China'.
