Technology & Entrepreneurship Panel

科技分论坛 Technology & Entrepreneurship Panel

From Made in China to Innovated in China
How Chinese Technology and Entrepreneurship Connects to the World

Technology & Entrepreneurship Panel will focus on the evolution from “Made in China” to “Innovated in China” and how “massive entrepreneurship and innovation” generates enormous power for China’s economy. With the growing contacts between China and other countries, Chinese high-tech companies no longer stand on the sideline; rather, they actively pursue integration into the global market through overseas IPOs, international mergers, and acquisitions. While becoming part of the world, Chinese high-tech companies not only lead the transition from “Made in China” to “Innovated in China”, but are also well on their way to changing the world. As technological advance is inseperable from sucessful entreprenuership, the Chinese governemnt has also emphasized “Massive Entrepreneurship and Innovation” as a national strategy to boost the development of economy in the context of “New Normal”. We hope that through our discussion, we can gain deeper insights into how high-tech companies deal with their strengths and weaknesses, how experienced Brown alums think about “massive entrepreneurship and innovation”, and how they make their way to change the world.
