About the Event
The challenge of entering the chinese market has become an increasingly important to Israeli companies of all shapes and sizes. Despite a difficult economic climate in Europe and the United States, China’s economy has continued to grow by double-digit rates over the past couple of years. With the country poised to overtake the US as the second largest global economy by 2020 and destined to remain an engine of global growth for the next decade, understanding how to enter such a large and complex market has become critical to most companies in the B2B sphere.
China’s Startup Industry has been booming in recent years. From the era of “Made in China” in the very beginning, we have witnessed the trend of innovative & high added-value industries’ development in China. Due to the significantly rise of middle classes in China, China now has more and more unicorns especially in 2c sectors (Startups with market value that has exceeded 1 billion US dollars) which are famous around the world.
- What has “catalyzed” such a rapid shift in China?
- What Israel can derive from China’s successful experience?
- How could China & Israel work together for constructing better innovation ecosystem?
