"Mass entrepreneurship and innovation" is a widely discussed term these days. In the US, where entrepreneurship is part and parcel of the lifestyle, ambitious Chinese entrepreneurs who accept nothing other than being second to none have developed many excellent projects. The Startup Expo was created in a move to allow entrepreneurs to better share their experiences and seek cooperation opportunities, while allowing investors to more efficiently and directly find out about and further investigate the most interesting startup projects. Zonvon founder Elaine Li further explained that the summit will be the first online-to-offline combination of Chinese and US startup resources, laying a solid foundation for further communication and cooperation between startups in these two vast markets.
