  16. 16. TechRice and other sources re China’s entrepreneurial economy<br />For a story on leading incubator, see http://en.chuangxin.com/<br />For quick analysis of current trends in venture capital in China,  a good place to start is TECHRICE www.techrice.com.    <br />See also ZERO2IPO.COM   www.zero2ipo.com.  This year's comnference is http://www.zero2ipo.com.hk/cvcf/sv2010/default.asp.<br />For social gaming in China, see an excellent presentation by Kai Lukoff of TECHRICE at http://www.slideshare.net/klukoff/about-kai-lukoff and  see also Jens Hilgers of China Venture Labs at http://www.jenshilgers.net/.   See below their piece from VENTUREBEAT http://venturebeat.com/2010/08/03/chinajoy-the-game-show-goes-on-despite-concerns-that-hardcore-game-growth-is-slowing/.<br />
  17. 17. Innovation in the 21st Century<br />The success of Chinese art, design and film are creating global industries and brands in fashion and creative industries. Innovation is a concept that European and North American investors and policy makers have had trouble defining for a long while. I wrote a long time ago that collisions of culture explain many historical innovations including the obvious beginnings of Italian pasta from a Marco Polo trip to … China. The way we adapt to ideas differentiates an Amsterdam where Spinoza accelerates perspective with innovation in lens manufacturing or Agra with its convergence of cultures innovating in architecture and philosophy or Silicon Valley where researchers from Russia contribute with Indians and Malaysians to design new software architecture. Sometimes innovation is when a Tamil meets a Moroccan and comes up with a new sauce for cooking lamb. Sometimes innovation is when a guided research project produces an industrial biotechnology product that extends the shelf life of cellophane wrapped fruits. Sometimes it is an idea or an application, for example a fast food chain coming up with a nutrition audit for customers who make 100 purchases.<br />
  18. 18. Chinnovation or ERHU meets BACH<br />The entrepreneurial window in China is too large to quantify. Chinnovation and new centres show adaptation, not just the venture capital strategy of emulating a digital infrastructure the way venture capital funds in Shanghai or Tunis do as they proliferate the digital economy. Inventive China has many opportunities: global leadership on fisheries management, the designed commercialization of new sources of energy from nanotechnology, the creative fusion of the 53 languages and cultures that mix in Kunming, the equally creative fusion of Chinese classical music with western forms as the erhu meets minimalism and John Adams chorale music, the development of a disruptive science of medical nutrition through extension of Chinese herbal remedies. All of this requires an entrepreneurial spirit and a moral imagination that sees how value is created from new ideas.<br />
  19. 19. Innovation ecosystems in China – partnering with Novartis or Siemens<br />China can partner with Nokia in global mobility, Siemens in manufacturing, Intel and Cisco in digital infrastructure, Novartis in healthcare and nutrition and shape the world’s leading commercialization ecosystems. Canadians and promoters of China-Canada innovation alliances have to design venture capital models in energy production, pipeline design, urban transportation system, water management (including irrigation and port megaprojects) that reflect our unique synergies.<br />
  20. 20. Sea Turtles and the digital infrastructure business model (Chengwei portfolio)<br />First generation post-Internet economy activities in China have been largely derivative models, a Chinese Yahoo, a Chinese Amazon, a Chinese version of all the Internet architecture, which is required for digital entrepreneurship. The second generation, where we are now, will see the development of unique Chinese business models and commercial products: the new silk and the new gunpowder.<br />www.chengwei.com<br />www.gobiventures.com<br />
  21. 21. Canadian entrepreneurs and Chinese growth<br />Hydro management and portable power with smart energy<br />Nutrition production with agricultural productivity through fertilizer innovation.<br />Water management from irrigation to purification technologies<br />Global content with multicultural management teams.<br />The New Silk and the New Compass are being commercialized today.<br />China’s creative talent needs access to global markets.<br />Innovative business models require global sources and open source global networks<br />Chinese engineering is key to 21st Century global prosperity.<br />
