TechCrunch Shenzhen 2017


It has been four years since and the TechCrunch China Summit landed in China. In that time, we have seen six sessions in Beijing and Shanghai with more than 300 speakers, including the world’s most famous entrepreneurs and venture investors, such as Alphabet/Google CEO Mr. Eric Schmidt, Xiaoping Xu, Fan Bao, Kaifu Li, Yossi Vardi, Davide Cole, and Huateng Ma, CEO of Tencent. We have also hosted high-profile guests from tech companies, including Twitter, ZTE, DJI, Xiaomi, iRobot, Smartisan, Mobike, Sogou, Mogujie,, and NextVR.


Each session has attracted 200+ startups and 170+ media outlets from around the globe while 800+ startups participated in our feature VC Meetup sessions. The annual TechCrunch Summit is the definitive international venture conference in China. In previous years, the Summit was hosted in Beijing which boasts the best entrepreneurial environment in China, and Shanghai, a global top-ranking city for innovation. In 2017, we go to Shenzhen, the Silicon Valley of hardware!


Starting in 2015, Shenzhen has gone from strength to strength and it is picking up speed due to its strong entrepreneurial culture and policy support from all levels of the government. According to data from the Shenzhen government, there are already more than 1 million startups in the city as of August 2016, as well as 128 companies listed on the city’s Growth Enterprise Market (GEM) and Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) boards.


With mottos like “The more competent, the more successful” and “To be wrong is to lose,” Shenzhen is a city of practicality and real success, promoting perseverance, excellence, and creativity and attracting entrepreneurs from all corners of the world to test themselves.
