China is now the second largest economy in the world. Technology and innovation have often been seen as the backbone of China’s unprecedented economic rise.  To understand China’s growth, it is therefore important to understand how Chinese firms are innovating.

Five entrepreneurs who have won HRH Prince Andrew KG’s Pitch@Palace China competition will speak about their entrepreneurial journey from China to London prior to the Pitch@Palace Global 3.0 at St. James’s Palace.  

They will share their highs and lows with students, alumni, academics and entrepreneurs at 6:00 PM, 10th December 2018, Queen Mary, University of London.

 This event is being hosted by Dr Lutao Ning, Professor of International Business, School of Business and Management, Queen Mary University of London
