It’s inspiring to see the thriving startup community, and we are dedicated to providing these entrepreneurs with a holistic approach to their initiatives”, said Rajinish Menon, Director of ISV & Cloud Strategy for Microsoft BizSpark’s. “Being an entrepreneur in Beijing myself, I can say first hand that China has come a long way in its journey as a leading market place, particularly in the technology field,” says Mr. Eric L. Schmidt, Founder and President of China Entrepreneurs.
Leading the world by the sheer number of Chinese technology consumers alone, China’s economy clearly has the surplus to cultivate innovation and they are looking to the world’s model for technology innovation, Silicon Valley, for the support to become technology leader s themselves.
Marguerite Gong Hancock, associate director of the Stanford Program on Regions of Innovation and Entrepreneurship told San Jose Mercury News, “It’s a thorough, aggressive and strategic strategy to have China move from manufacturing to the lab. There is a very dense network of venture capital and entrepreneurship in Beijing that has evolved over the last 10 years that is very similar to what happened in Silicon Valley.”
