It is estimated that they met 50 experts as well as 80 investors and 400 new contacts were made during the ten days they spent in China. Most of them have already started their next steps of entering China right after the program. The Urban Entrepreneurs: Smarten Your City Workshop, our third collaboration with Lift, gathered about 40 participants with diverse backgrounds but all interested in urban issues. We are now waiting for their final submissions to select the best idea. The winner will be invited to Geneva for prototyping in next spring.
