In the last three decades the world has undergone a digital transformation that has pervaded all areas of daily life, a phenomenon that has certainly not skipped China. And in the southeastern edge of the country, the city of Shenzhen – which in an astoundingly short period of time has stamped its mark as technological capital, dubbed the “China Style” Silicon Valley.
Similarly, Israel has been hailed around the world as the “Startup Nation”. Therefore, it was of no surprise that Shenzhen held a Mass Entrepreneurship and Innovation Week in mid-October, to enable entrepreneurs, companies and investors from the two countries to meet and discuss potential China business set ups.
With his vast experience in accompanying international companies during their China market entry and growing stages, our General Manager, Arie Schreier, was invited to speak and share his insights at one of China’s most discussed and exclusive of conferences.
Arie introduced the audience to the variety of challenges Israeli startups face while entering the Chinese market, and referred to the optimal conditions required for the continuation of the China-Israeli cooperation in innovation.
The increasing Chinese interest in promoting its reliance on domestic innovation is an important opportunity for Israeli companies, as well as Chinese investors, to leverage mutual cooperation between them.
