On 22nd & 23rd April, a selected group of startups from Austria, India, Canada, and Hong Kong traveled to Shenzhen to experience hardware startup ecosystem and witness first-hand innovative and creative products coming out of this region.

This trip is organized by Startup Launchpad – Asia largest startup retail show. Every April and Oct, Startup Launchpad organizes tradeshows to connect distributors with the most innovative hardware startups ranging from IoT, smart wearable, robotics, health tech, etc. As the key startup players in Greater Bay Area, Startup Launchpad also hosts an ecosystem tour for international exhibitors to learn about doing business in China and help connect them with partners that can take their business to the next levels.

This year Startup Launchpad and HIBC, co-hosted Startup Networking Night at HIBC. Startups had the opportunity to learn the secrets of how to successfully do business in China. They got to listen to an insightful speech given by Cassie Xia, CEO/founder of HIBC about business in China and important steps they should be taking when they try to enter the Chinese market. They also heard from Alan Zhao, a lawyer from P.C.Woo & Zhong Lun W.D.LLP, about Intellectual property laws in China, and different legal scenarios past companies have faced when doing business here.

今年,弘夏国际联手Startup Launchpad共同举办了创业交流之夜。初创企业们有机会学习如何能成功地进入中国市场的秘诀。弘夏国际创始人CEO Cassie Xia女士对关于外商投资企业进入中国市场时需要注意的重要事项做了精彩的演讲。同时来自中伦文德胡百全(前海)联营律师事务所的Alan Zhao律师也对如何在中国申请知识产权做了详细的阐述。

The night was not just about listening about Chinese business and law, 4 startups also had been given the opportunity to give pitches to a VC fund: Power Law Capital. The companies that got a chance to share their unique and innovative products were Aurox, Happymed, UshVa and Future Dog. These are the types of future ideas that got to share at Startup Networking Night at HIBC. After each startup’s pitches, Power Law Capital gave constructive feedbacks, which would help each company be able to pitch to investors more successfully in the future.

It was truly a productive and meaningful night for startups to learn more about doing business in China, share their products and make friends.
