Global Youth Entrepreneurs Forum 2016

from Start-up to Scale-up: Igniting Innovation

This 2-day event in Hong Kong and Shenzhen Qianhai is for young start-ups, innovators, sector experts and corporate executives that need to embrace challenge and break bottlenecks.

While global outlook looks less than optimistic, innovation is essential to inject new ideas and energy. Some skills needed to move forward and stay competitive are innovative product design, marketing, supply chain management and partnership. These are the issues to be addressed at the Forum and a networking platform for delegates will be available via a new website function.

Last year, over 1,000 delegates from 20 countries and regions including Israel, Singapore, the UK, the USA, the Mainland China and Hong Kong gathered at the Forum to build partnerships and discuss to the latest trends disruptive technology, social innovation, and financing. As a third edition of the Forum this year, high calibre youth start-ups, investors, business executives, industry sector experts, trendsetters and government officials will assemble again to develop networks and learn about best practices for economic growth and recovery.
