A high-level sharing and networking event featuring the presentation of the key insights of GBA’s startup scene and speakers from governments, corporates and key stakeholders in Shenzhen startup ecosystem.

Hong Kong and the mainland part of the Greater Bay Area have had a lack of coherent market or customer union largely due to the differences in government policies, legal system, business culture, market characteristics, languages berries, etc.

However, the “Greater Bay Area Development Policy Guideline” published by the government of China in 2019 has set a more integrated and active GBA startup ecosystem in motion, with the fast developing transportation infrastructure as the primary catalyst.

In this session, WHub will present our key learnings of the latest trends and insights for startups to achieve rapid growth in GBA as the industry-agnostic community builder in the region. It will be followed by the panel discussion bringing together the major stakeholders to discuss the current and potential synergetic policies and programs in Shenzhen that startups can benefit from.
