From Imitator to Innovator: A Media Perspective on China’s Tech Revolution

Silicon Valley remains home to seven of the largest technology companies in the world, but a new challenger has emerged.

As China announces its plans to launch the Greater Bay Area, the tech race is set to peak. A panel of leading journalists convene to discuss the implications of this tech revolution and the effects it will have on US innovation, investments and talent resources.

This informative conversation will touch on a wide-range of themes including:

  • VC perspective: Should Silicon Valley investors be worried that China’s tech sector will eat their lunch?
  • Talent wars: What a brain drain to China might mean for Silicon Valley’s ever-growing talent gap.
  • Innovation: Could China’s Greater Bay Area not only replicate Silicon Valley but also outpace it as the most important center for scientific and technological innovation?
