The China Innovation and Entrepreneurship Forum at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology was founded in 2011 to promote intellectual exchanges and collaborations between China and the United States in technology, innovation and entrepreneurship. Every year in mid-November, distinguished scholars, investors, industry leaders and entrepreneurs gather to address the 600 students and professionals from around the world that attend this this two-day event to to be inspired by thought leaders and hear the latest on cutting-edge technologies.
This year’s event will focus on robotics, space exploration, innovative education, healthcare IT, startup development and early-stage investment and incubators. I have the distinct pleasure of speaking on a panel on start-up development alongside executives from Pacific Founder, Interface Ventures and DeepGlint, moderated by Elaine Chin, Senior Lecturer, Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship. The panel will focus on the factors to consider when deciding about starting up a company, the problems that could arise during initial development stages, the key factors for success and special tips for founding a startup in China.
The session will be held at 1:30pm this Saturday at MIT (full event schedule here: http://mitchief.org/program). If you are interested in joining us, please register here: http://mitchief.org/register.
I look forward to an enlightening discussion.
