In late August, a delegation of 40 representatives from companies as well as Chambers of Commerce in the north of Germany (IHK Nord) is visiting Shenzhen to gain a better understanding of the Chinese market and to explore new business opportunities with Chinese companies and local start-ups.

For their visit, German Industry and Commerce and the German Chamber of Commerce | South & Southwest China are cooperating with IHK Nord, to hold the 3rd AHK Innovation Night in Shenzhen in the evening of August 27th.

AHK Innovation Night is a business networking event that promotes business exchange between startups and SMEs. The event provides a platform for tech-startups to compete against each other in a pitching event, in which they can showcase their innovative technologies and solutions in front of potential cooperation partners and investors.

For the participants, the event is an ideal opportunity to work on their business relationships and to get innovation-related insights and information on topics at the same time. Therefore, we sincerely invite Chinese startups, high-tech enterprises, investors, German chamber members to participate in AHK Innovation Night!
