Event Description

AHK INNOVATION NIGHT

Connecting people and creating partnerships has been our passion for over 125 years. We not only build bridges for established companies, but also between young entrepreneurs in the new industries.


Long-term competitiveness depends on your innovative capacity. The AHK Innovation Night is a platform for established companies to meet and engage with the business generation of tomorrow. Since the introduction of this platform, it has become a highly popular in our community.


At the AHK Innovation Night in Shenzhen, corporate representatives will have the opportunity to relate a pressing challenge or obstacle their business is currently facing. We will then help find the right innovators to tailor a solution for you. A pre-selection of corporate challenges will be made during a series of regional events organised by the AHK main offices. The ones who get chosen will be invited to pitch their challenge at the AHK Innovation Night in Shenzhen.
