The U.S.-China Entrepreneur’s Forum sponsored by Arizona State University

November 28, 2017 — Charlotte, NC – 50 Chinese entrepreneurs with 50 American entrepreneurs were selected to attend the U.S.-China Entrepreneur’s Forum for innovation and economic opportunities. The Forum will be held in Shenzhen, China from December 4th – 9th, 2017. The intent of the Forum is to strengthen U.S.-China people-to-people ties and increase mutual understanding from both sides. In addition, the Forum will showcase the next generation of outstanding American and Chinese leaders in entrepreneurship and innovation, and help to access each other’s markets and build mutually beneficial relationships with one another (and investors).

“We’ll be looking for opportunities to develop relationships with American and Chinese counterparts, and better understand risks to the business community and strategies to mitigate them abroad,” said Vanessa Vaughn, Founder of Asfalis. How does China’s Cybersecurity Law help protect networks from cybercrime? What are the top business challenges in China? What barriers, if any, are preventing companies from increasing innovation in China? “These are a few questions we are looking to learn more about while in Shenzhen,” said Vanessa Vaughn.

According to the American Chamber of Commerce in China in partnership with Bain and Company, the 2017 Business Climate Survey 40% of companies believe positive bilateral relations between China and the US is critical to business growth in China. Additionally, the report identified inconsistent regulations and rising labor costs as the top two business challenges in China.
