About this event

Science fiction is an emerging genre in the history of world literature. Many Chinese science fiction novels have appeared in the first half of the last century, but they have experienced a weary development since then. Till 2015 the first part of " The Three-Body Problem" won the Hugo Award, Chinese science fiction gained widespread social attention. The unprecedented success of the movie "The Wandering Earth" generated a heat in science fiction and creative industry. "The Wandering Earth" not only had a good harvest at the box office and word-of-mouth. The crowdfunding of derivative products exceeded 3 million on the first day. The products basically sold out within two days, and the sales exceeded 7 million. The main driving force behind its success is SCIFI Space. SCIFI Space not only signed the contract with "The Three-Body Problem" play, cooperated with Science Fiction World Magazine, but also is fully responsible for the development of "The Three-Body Problem" derivatives.

At Startup Grind Chengdu’s #34 event, we are honored to have invited Mr. Yue Sun, an industry expert and entrepreneur, Founder of SCIFI Space, Founder of Masters Of The Future Award, current CEO of Chengdu Future Light Co. Ltd. Deputy Secretary-general of Sichuan Science Fiction Association, to talk about science fiction world and cultural innovation, and how he led his army of Sci-Fi to conquer the trendy vertical, from original fantasy content to IP trading to derivatives development, and to the full ecological cycle building.
