CIEF: A vane that attracts capital attention and investment
Since CIEF is located in Guangzhou, it has become a powerful motive for Guangzhou to implement the innovation-driven development strategy. Last year, Guangzhou achieved gross regional product (GRP) of RMB 2,150 billion, an increase of 7%, and gross domestic product (GDP) per capita of over USD 20,000. In Guangzhou, there are over 150 scientific research institutions, over 8,700 high-tech enterprises and nearly 170,000 technological innovation enterprises as well as incubators covering an area of more than 9 million m2. In Guangzhou, there is a rapid integration of industrial chain, innovation chain and capital chain, rapid shaping of high-end, high-quality and new modern industrial system, obviously improved capability of supplying technologies that lead others and those keeping pace, and significantly strengthened capability concentrating on global innovation resources.
CIEF is committed to offering the "last mile" achievement conversion solution in the market-based manner, thus facilitating precise matchmaking between innovation chain and industrial chain. At CIEF 2018, over 100 venture capitals, including IDG Capital, SB China Venture Capital, ASBV, GSR Ventures, Cowin Capital, HG Capital, QF Capital, Happen Capital, and Innoangel Fund, visited each exhibition area and each special activity with their representatives negotiating with excellent projects closely, thus helping each project find buyers and establishing a platform for investment projects of the investors. In IDG Global Mobile Internet Creative Development Competition (MIC), domestic and overseas excellent mobile internet enterprises, including Potrero Medical (US), Chengdu Jingwei Technology and ResQ Club (Finland), the champion, runner-up and second runner-up of MIC, respectively, as well as individuals, teams and enterprises engaged in mobile app development, tried their best to attract attention from investors. VC giants reviewed all project roadshows on the site sharply, critically, or humorously, and identified all future unicorns in their eyes. As a result, "Realizing capital layout at CIEF" has become another new slogan of this edition of CIEF.
Sticking to the principle of realizing achievement conversion and capital layout at CIEF, CIEF has made it an eye-catching event in the eyes of VCs by means of its height, width and depth of each participating project, and converted them into actual financial and investment actions, allowing for thorough understanding of science and technology direction and capital flow within a three-day fair. In spite of official closing of CIEF 2018 together with its exhibition and display and special activities, "1+1+N" achievement matchmaking and conversion will never close.
