With a tremendous amount of investment made by VCs, both the US and China have witnessed a rapid growth of Cleantech start-up formation in recent years. As these two leading Cleantech countries present different policy framework, industry characteristics and competitive landscape, visionary entrepreneurs have gone across the border to embrace new challenges and pursue even bigger opportunities.

CHAIN proudly presents a panel of Cleantech leaders to share their entrepreneurial endeavors in Cleantech across the border between the US and China. Panelists will tackle from multiple angles including taking US technologies/products to the Chinese market, outsourcing supply chain or R&D to China, and taking Chinese businesses to the US market. They will provide their insights in working with governments, investors, corporate partners and talents in both countries.
