Started in 2014, Startup Grind Shenzhen has become "the community" that startups go when they move to the city to chase their dreams. in southeastern China, Shenzhen is a modern metropolis that links Hong Kong to China’s mainland and also one of the fastest developing cities of the country. 

Shenzhen's cityscape results from its vibrant economy - made possible by rapid foreign investment following the institution of the policy of "reform and opening-up" in 1979. The city is a leading global technology hub, dubbed by media as the next Silicon Valley and China's Silicon Valley. It was one of the fastest-growing cities in the world in the 1990s and the 2000s, and has been ranked second on the list "top 10 cities to visit in 2019" by Lonely Planet.

Home to many world's tech giants like Tencent, Huawei, HTC, DJI, and constantly growing new startups and innovations.
