Innovation and Entrepreneurship Trip to Stanford University and Silicon Valley

From April 29th to May 6th, 2019, a exchange group of PhD students, including 10 PhD candidates and 3 teachers of Zhejiang University, visited Stanford University and Silicon Valley enterprises to experience and explore how innovation and entrepreneurship are nurtured and optimized.

Within a week, the exchange group attended the theme lectures on innovation and entrepreneurship between China and the United States and a series of lectures on entrepreneurial thought of leaders at Stanford University. The exchange group participated in the 2019 Stanford China Entrepreneurship Forum and the 2nd Global Future Innovation Summit in the Z-park Silicon Valley Center. Accompanied by alumni, they visited Google, Apple, Facebook and other well-known innovative companies in Silicon Valley. At Zhejiang University Silicon Valley Research Institute, they participated in the lecture given by Dean Xue. They also visited Plug and Play and Centrillion Technologies with alumni, and had an in-depth communication with them.

This visit yielded a lot of experience, broadened students鈥 international perspective, and revealed the differences between China and the United States in the field of innovation and entrepreneurship, providing valuable suggestions for the development of innovation and entrepreneurship in China.
