ABOUT START-UP  

The SVIEF Startup Contest is one of the brands of the Silicon Valley Technology Innovation & Entrepreneurship Forum (SVIEF), of which the main purpose is to provide a high-end and outstanding learning, networking and developing platform for Chinese and American startup projects. Based in the Silicon Valley, SVIEF is aiming at spreading innovation thoughts, building up a sound technology innovation environment, leading the integration of the Chinese and American technology, talents, capital and market.

 
SVIEF Start-up was successfully held four times since 2011. This time the SVIEF Start-up includes 3 contest seasons, and the final around will be held at the 5th SVIEF conference. More than 50 qualified projects from the previous contests were settled in the technology centers throughout different cities in China with the help of the committee, and they got the financial and policy support from local government as well as the investment and support from top500 companies.

This summer session would still be the highlight of SVIEF’s events. We would break into creating blockbuster startup projects. By inviting professional mentors, respected venture capitalists to comment the project roadshows, scheduling 1-1 talks for the investors and the entrepreneurs and diversified multi-media campaigns, the contest would build up favorable business environment, acquire sufficient capital support and pave the developing stages for the startups.
