China’s entrepreneurial landscape has expanded rapidly in the past decade, fueled by consumer demand, cutting edge innovation, and the phenomenal success of standouts such as Baidu, Alibaba, and Tencent.
The government has responded to this fervor with a range of large scale funding initiatives and investment in incubators, making Beijing the national hub for start-ups and the strongest magnet within APAC for VC funds.
But, what’s on the horizon? What implications does the current economic slowdown have for future entrepreneurs? How do investing attitudes and philosophies in China compare to models applied in other markets?
We invite you join us for a conversation on May 24th. Meet a panel of successful, multi-sector entrepreneurs and investors, who will discuss these issues and their own experiences.
Chicago Booth is uniquely positioned to help entrepreneurs build the skillsets needed to transform ideas into successful businesses. We provide immersive, experiential learning and venture acceleration resources for University of Chicago students and alumni.
