With the explosion of China’s economy, a new energetic, innovative spirit is taking hold of how it invests for the future. China’s thriving entrepreneurial drive is transforming the models for starting a company and doing business. Already China’s investment in start-ups has created a new Silicon Valley in Beijing that is attracting the world’s leading companies and has become a magnet for innovators and entrepreneurs. This eruption of entrepreneurial creativity has unleashed unprecedented growth for the digital media and e-commerce industries, giving rise to China’s “Facebooks”,“Twitters”, and “EBays” nearly overnight. Chinese firms have moved from being imitators to innovators, creating a new class of Chinese start-up entrepreneurs and a host of new strategies for connecting, serving, and entertaining consumers. This sea change in China has opened the door to opportunity wide for a new generation of young entrepreneurs and innovators.
