About the conference
ATI's annual entrepreneurial conference provides unique networking opportunities for high-profile attendees, especially in giving U.S. based companies the chance to meet many up-and-coming Chinese entrepreneurs. This year's conference will focus on the rapidly changing nature of the web. Panels will facilitate discussion on Web 2.0, alternative energy, and the issues of intellectual property in China.
The Business Value of Web 2.0: Consumer experience with Web 2.0 in China. Industrial trends in Web 2.0, such as AJAX and open source, have resulted in thousands of new web-based applications and programs. What type of programs is the Chinese market most in need of, how can businesses capitalize on this, and how can everyday users benefit from the development of Web 2.0 in China? Topics include, but are not limited to:
  • What the '2' really means
  • Monetization, Monetization, Monetization
  • Content censorship in China
  • Vertical search and mashup
  • Social multimedia file sharing and personalized recommendation
  • Decentralization of content generation and social filtering
Intellectual Property Issues: Strengthening Foreign IP in China. Multinational firms often hurt themselves by trying to develop their business models in China in the same way they would approach a market in the Western world. If these foreign corporations provide more reasonable prices and guidelines here, especially in the software and entertainment industries, how much would this increase the value of their intellectual property? How could entrepreneurs within China use a similar business strategy to protect their IP and compete with foreign groups? In this panel, we will discuss:
  • Operation and company investment on all IP aspects
  • Sale and acquisition of IP related assets
  • Negotiation of technology license agreements

Alternative Energy: The world’s focus on alternative energy has reached a new height in recent years. As a nation experiencing unprecedented growth, how must China deal with its ever increasing need for energy? Where is alternative energy on China’s agenda? What are the steps being taken today and tomorrow, and how can these solutions be implemented? Why is this important for China, and what are the opportunities that have emerged as a result?
