Future Collaboration between Startups and Corporates
In the intensely competitive start-up scene in China, how can an entrepreneur stand out and achieve success? Can one stand out and lead the pack just by relying on the power of capital or a single technological breakthrough? We believe that the single biggest natural advantage that entrepreneurs have is innovation, and this is what large companies urgently need.
