Magnify China 2021
Magnify China is back! This July, we have guest speakers and exclusive presentations prepared by our 36Kr Global Research team, dissecting the topics that are moving China's landscape.
The past year and a half has seen a lot of change, due to the pandemic, changing regulations and evolving consumer practices. Global MNCs and Chinese companies are also gradually warming up to each other.
In this 2-day event, we'll discuss the effects of these changes on the Chinese landscape—how it all fits together, and where the opportunities lie? We'll go deeper into technologies and their industrial applications, and uncover MNCs that have successfully innovated in China. Lastly, we want to talk about how China's consumption habits are evolving and share the perspectives of Chinese companies that have ventured outside of their home market.
Check out the full agenda below!
*Please note that this event will be English and Mandarin Chinese, with English subtitles
Magnify is a flagship event by KrASIA, incepted to help our valued members better understand the evolving business landscape in Asia. For enquiries, drop us a line at [email protected]
We will see you there!
|4.00pm - 4.30pm|
Corporate Innovation in China
Open Innovation and Corporate Venture Capital are ways in which MNCs and traditional enterprises have been engaging the tech ecosystems. While it's no secret that the Chinese ecosystem has much to offer in investment, technological collaboration and knowledge, we look at the various formats through which MNCs have ventured into China's innovation space.
|4.30pm - 5.00pm|
China's Leading Technologies: AI, Automobiles, Fintech & Agritech
What are the drivers behind China's continual yet rapid technological progress? How exactly are new technologies applied to different industries? For example, 5G is such an obtuse, opaque buzz concept that is actually easier understood through its applications.

Enterprise Services: Finding an Edge Overseas
SandStar, Black Lake Technologies, VisionNav Robotics, Vision Plus Capital (moderator)
Enterprise Services is one of the hottest industries in China—it consistently ranks as one of the top invested fields in the venture capital scene. Both investors and entrepreneurs alike are jumping in the opportunity yet the domestic market still remains fragmented and it's hard to say if the hype has been matched. Can Chinese companies break through the noise and find their edge overseas?
