How Entrepreneurship and cross-border collaboration can create positive change and overcome economic and political obstacles?


"In times of crisis, the wise build bridges while the foolish build barriers."

(King T'Challa - Black Panther)

A subject that is shaping the future of globalization, generating intense debates not only in both countries but worldwide, from politics to education, entrepreneurship, and the current state of innovation. When we talk about China and the U.S., we talk about the dangers and opportunities, the synergies and obstacles, and the future of the global economy and our society.

中美协同在政治、教育、创业和当前创新状态领域中持续塑造全球化未来 – 因此在两国之间和国际舞台上备受争议。中美关系不仅涉及风险与机遇,也关系着协同与障碍,以及全球经济与社会未来。

Coming straight from New York, and after a successful event hosted together with both New York-based global innovation platform Accathon Capital, and startup accelerator Lair East in middle-July, Michael Zhu is coming back to Beijing to share valuable insights and his point of view concerning the bilateral exchanges in capital, innovation, technology, fundraising, investment, and related entrepreneurial initiatives between China and the U.S. amid the current state of a tentative trade war, and how active players from both markets can successfully cooperate and learn from each other.

Michael Zhu在7月中旬与纽约国际创新平台Accathon Capital和创业加速器Lair East共同举办的活动圆满告终之后,从纽约返回北京参与此次活动。他将分享给予今日中美贸易战当下两国资本,创新,技术,筹资,投资和相关创业倡议的宝贵见解与分析;以及双方市场如何能够有效地相互合作与学习。

For startups, investors, and corporations with a primary interest in the cross-border relationship between the current two global superpowers, this a first-class opportunity to get insights shared from the Founder of Accathon Capital, a cross-border accelerator and VC investor in frontier technologies in different industries that share in common an interest in the U.S. and Chinese markets.

对两国之间的跨境关系有着浓厚兴趣的创业公司、投资者和企业来言,这是一个千载难逢的机会。Accathon Capital是一家前沿技术跨境加速器和风险投资公司,它涉及的行业与中美协同有着共同利益。公司创始人将与大家分享他宝贵的见解与分析。

Come to our event on Wednesday, December 5th to learn how China and the U.S. can overcome political and economic barriers, create positive change, and boost innovation & entrepreneurship thanks to a beneficial cross-border collaboration.


We will cover the following key topics:

  1. Why it is the ideal time for foreign High-Tech Start-ups to get to China?
  2. Which Start-ups should come to China and which should think twice before entering?
  3. Why many foreign and local companies in China are missing out massive cooperation potential by ignoring foreign high-tech Start-ups in China.
  4. How a New York based Accelerator/VC is successfully matchmaking foreign Start-ups with local companies.


  1. 为什么这是外国高科技企业进入中国的理想的时间?
  2. 哪些初创企业应该来中国和在进入之前应该三思而后行?
  3. 为什么许多中国的外国和本地公司忽视了中国的外国高科技初创企业,错失了巨大的合作潜力。
  4. 纽约的加速器/ VC如何成功地将外国初创企业与本地公司相匹配。
