On May 11th, the Opening Ceremony for International Business Acceleration Program 2022 (Hereafter IBAP 2022) took place virtually and successfully, and it’s co-hosted by Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU), neoBay Global Innovation and Entrepreneurship Community (neoBay), International Ecosystem for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (IEIE), Shanghai Minhang Overseas Talents Entrepreneurship Park and other partners.
This program is a series of events, workshops and mentoring sessions that brings together students, entrepreneurs, professors, practitioners and business experts around the globe to demonstrate and discuss their fresh ideas in terms of innovation and entrepreneurship.
IBAP 2022 was kickstarted with the welcome speech delivered by Mr. LUO Peng, Director of International Affairs Division and Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan Office of Shanghai Jiao Tong University. In his speech, Mr. Luo extended his warm welcome and gratitude to all the speakers, hosts, and audiences of IBAP 2022. He briefly introduced Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU), where he highlighted SJTU’s long history of innovation and entrepreneurship education. On this basis, Mr. Luo introduced neoBay, which was co-founded by SJTU, Shanghai Land Group and the local government of Minhang District. Mr. Luo then highlighted neoBay’s achievements and developments over the years, of which includes the construction of the inter-ecosystem modality for internationalization. With that, he concluded with his insights on the position of mankind within the most traumatising period of Covid’19, suggesting that the strong spirit of entrepreneurship and innovation will lead us through the hard times in togetherness.
Prof. ZHANG Zhigang, General Manager of Shanghai neoBay Venture Capital Co., Ltd., then shared his insights on the topic of “Basic logic for Entrepreneurship – Collaborating with the world in our way”. He talked about his perspectives on the development of human society and how an entrepreneur could collaborate with an ecosystem. To set the foundation, Prof. Zhang talked about the developments of humankind — from the Cognitive Revolution, the Agricultural Revolution, the Scientific Revolution till the Intelligence Revolution in detail. Following that, he mentioned how neoBay devoted itself into supporting the development of the industries based on the pyramid model for a sustainably developing society. The main ideas that Prof. Zhang brought across to the audiences are “sustainable development” and “collaboration”, in which he emphasized that everyone should bring about their positive influence to the system that they can reach, no matter whom they are, be it a student, an employee, or an entrepreneur, as they are all systems themselves. These individual systems should be constructive to the bigger system of the society, where Prof. Zhang expressed that only in this way, will it be truly sustainable. Thus, Prof. Zhang highlighted that the basic logic for entrepreneurship is building up a new system and collaborating with the society in everyone’s own way which can create values favouring the sustainable development of the society. With that, he concluded his speech with a finding of his research and his insights from the practice of neoBay, where he found that the most efficient way to collaborate with the society is to collaborate with essential systems and also to collaborate with essential nodes of a system.
The second keynote speech was delivered by Mr. XU Yang, the International Cooperation Manager of Shanghai neoBay Venture Capital Co., Ltd, who painted a clearer picture of neoBay for the audiences with his speech regarding “neoBay’s offerings to start-ups and its internationalization from 1.0-3.0”. Firstly, Mr. Xu gave a brief introduction of neoBay’s business structure and its key function as a global hub for innovation and entrepreneurship, aiming to build up an ecosystem to activate regional vitality. He gave an interesting analogy of neoBay being the applications for a smartphone, serving as an application layer of the “hardware” provided by the university, which includes education, research and infrastructure. In his speech, he further emphasized the internationalization that neoBay is pushing for — from the initial bilateral modality to the current inter-ecosystem modality. Then, he introduced Shanghai Minhang Overseas Talents Entrepreneurship Park is based on neoBay Global Innovation and Entrepreneurship Community, focusing on fostering internationally competitive enterprises founded by overseas talents and cultivating outstanding entrepreneurs."
