About this event

Under the guidance and support of the Administrative Committee of the Science and Technology Commission of Shanghai Municipality and Lin-gang Special Area of China (Shanghai) Pilot Free Trade Zone, World Top-Performing Incubator Forum 2024 (hereinafter referred to as the 2024 Top Incubator Forum or WTIF 2024) will be held from September 26th to 28th in Lingang, Shanghai. The forum aims to continue developing a professional, international, and value-connecting platform while also conveying the concept of "warm incubation", making the nurturing touch of technology incubation accessible.

Last December marked the successful conclusion of the inaugural World Top-Performing Incubator Forum. Over the two days, we received many indications of interest for collaboration and garnered widespread global attention. Leaders from incubator, ecosystem partners, investors, and entrepreneurs worldwide gathered to break free from conventional thinking and experienced the profound impact of innovation. The forum successfully connected thought leaders from more than 20 countries, achieved over 2,236,000 impressions, received extensive coverage from over 600 international media outlets, and attracted 200,000 live streaming views. The event brought together more than 300 startups, over 160 incubation projects, and numerous insightful industry experts, offering new perspectives and ideas for the development of global innovation ecosystem.

This year's forum, themed "Boundless Innovation, Collaborative Synergy" aims to assemble global incubators, leading tech project talents, industry experts, and investors to discuss and promote the transformation and upgrading of tech enterprises, industrial innovation, and the cutting-edge trends in technological innovation. The forum is committed to building a global incubation network, fostering cross-border incubation collaboration, and inspiring innovative forces, unleashing endless possibilities in Shanghai's Lingang – a world-class hub for incubation and innovation.
