We aim to bring out the best in China’s early stage companies, so we’ve selected 15 startups to battle it out on stage for the final award, which will be presented in the Main Conference Hall at the end of the event.


Our conference will host a “VC Meetup” section, which which will allow entrepreneurs to share their ideas with VCs face to face. Entrepreneurs have ten minutes to chat with VC Mentors about anything from their elevator pitch to industry trends.


Finding well executed innovation in the Chinese market is our passion, which is why we’ve set the stage for young startups to show us what they’ve been working on. Startup Alley participants who were founded less than two years ago with no more than $2 million USD funding are invited to join our Startup Alley.
