Why Is Shenzhen The Place To Be For Tech Companies?

In a stars webinar, Dr. Sherry XIAN, CEO of Luolai Health and Founding Partner of iCarbonX, China’s first health tech unicorn, highlighted the following factors that make Shenzhen the place to be for tech companies:

  1. A hardware supply chain ecosystem second to none
  2. An abundance of tech talent
  3. Strong government support
  4. Hard work and fast growth mentality

As a scientist-turned-entrepreneur, Sherry also talked about why critical thinking, imagination and curiosity are still lacking in many Chinese entrepreneurs, why investors are moving their focus to hardcore technologies like chips and DNA sequencing machines, and how COVID-19 has paved the way for broader adoption of digital health.
