What will happen in the year of Monkey in China?

Words from our CEO, Pascal Marmier 

To learn what China has in store for 2016, there is no better source than the analysis of Gordon Orr. Also read this WIRED story on the tech scene here. There are many links to our activities including CHIC in Shenzhen, the CTI Market Entry Camp and the collaboration with venturelab. Also we are delighted that David Li who is featured in the story will come to Switzerland to participate in this year's Lift Conference and meet Swiss innovators. Have a great year ahead and we are waiting for you in Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou or wherever your travels might bring you. We are also (almost) always online! Reach out, learn, build and help us develop stronger Sino-Swiss relationships!
