By providing expert consultation sessions to help the participating teams, USTB International Student Center invited professional innovation and entrepreneurship tutors to give instructions on the projects regarding business model, specific project plan, educational value, and employment promotion value. Before the official presentation stage, teams entering the online evaluation stage had special expert training on project presentation and defense.

Give full support to the Competition. USTB International Student Center set up a guidance team, providing language services such as writing translation of the Competition settings and notifications, oral interpretation of information, and expert consultation sessions to enhance international students' understanding of the Competition and motivation to participate. Special chat groups had been established to collect and answer questions of each team during the whole process. The coordinators actively kept in contact with the organizing committee to guarantee the work of registration, the establishment of chat groups, and the signing of commitment letters. The instructors also meticulously guided the team members to prepare for the Competition and did their best to hold several mock project presentations and defenses online.
