On 30th June, nine entrepreneurial teams from world-class universities, such as the University of Sydney, Harvard University, the University of Cambridge, Shanghai Tongji University, and Xi’an Jiaotong University, joined the 2021 Suzhou ‘Shuang Chuang’ Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition · the University of Sydney Centre in China Special Match with their innovative and diversified entrepreneurial projects.
This special match was conducted by the way of an online roadshow. The nine projects touched on a wide range of themes, covering information technology, artificial intelligence, medical devices, life culture and innovation, etc. Each project team outlined the product background, concept, core technology, innovation mode, and market competitiveness.
Judges and guests from Suzhou Institute of Nano-Tech and Nano-Bionics (SINANO) Chinese Academy of Sciences, Suzhou Association of Industrial Park, Suzhou Guofa Equity Investment Fund Management Co., Ltd., and Suzhou Dushu Lake University conducted a series of on-site Q & A and provided practical advice on the aspects of project innovation, business model, and sustainable development. After a series of selection rounds, outstanding project teams will participate in an offline roadshow in Suzhou International Elites Entrepreneurship Week on 10th July, 2021.
It is noteworthy that there were many outstanding alumni of the University of Sydney in this competition. Zhao Tianming is a doctoral student at the University of Sydney. He is also the CEO of an education company. After an in-depth analysis of the education industry, Zhao Tianming’s team realized that the dropout rate of college students was high. In view of this market pain point, Tianming and his team jointly developed a set of student retention management system based on artificial intelligence, striving to seize the market first while contributing to the optimization management of the education industry.
Wang Yutong, a public health master student at the University of Sydney, made her team project combined with the social trendy topic ‘anti-involution’ to promote Chinese tea culture with the creation of a ‘tea wonderland’ that used the concept of being ‘Buddha-like’ and ‘decompressing’. The team uses excellent content skills to increase the brand IP awareness, adapting to the preferences of young people. This entrepreneurial idea was encouraged by the judges.
