Entrepreneurship & China

Thu, 12 Sep 2013 2:00 PM

Abstract

China has experienced great economic growth over the last 30 years. However, this growth represents a policy success for the nation, not an entrepreneurial success. In the future as China seeks to move increasingly up the value chain to create products that generate greater value there is a need for far greater entrepreneurship in the nation. This presentation will examine the nature of entrepreneurship in China today, and the potential for the entrepreneurship in the nation in the future.
