This is a new one, and since late last night I’ve been talking to my friends in China about it, especially Paul Chong in Shanghai. All this effort doing the real-life networking and community building, the web makes it more sticky…and we need to bridge China to the world with the internet….

Today we are opening applications for 51guanxi.com – a members only network for foreigners and Chinese to “bridge” together to build long term, quality business relationships.

The team at SZteam will put all their power and network into helping connect Chinese and foreigners, as well as Chinese to Chinese, and foreigner to foreigner.

We aim to combine our awesome Shenzhen community, (and even wider to shanghai and beijing) with the rest of the world

APPLY TODAY!

Here is the bio I wrote up this afternoon:

I want Guanxi, You Want Guanxi

Build your China network.

51guanxi.com is a private members only community to connect Chinese and Foreigners to build, nurture, and grow their businesses.

It is moderated actively by a team in Shenzhen, China to ensure the quality of posts is relevant for China business. The team also actively engages the members to connect with the right potential business partners in our network

Questions:

Q: What does 51guanxi mean?
A: 51 is commonly used to in “internet chinese” lingo to mean “I Want” (wo yao) and guanxi is a popular (but controversial) word in Chinese that represents doing business through relationships.

We believe this name, “I want Guanxi” is a perfect fit for this closed, invite only network in China. It is definitely a website Chinese will not forget!

Q: But real Chinese businessmen never check social media + won’t update their profiles

EXACTLY WHY THIS COMMUNITY EXISTS! – our active community development team in Shenzhen will monitor what forum posts and activities are there, and then call / QQ / meet the appropriate chinese businessman to get answers and services you need! We are your virtual China agent!

APPLY TODAY!

Startups Shenzhen + SZteam are doing another first for Shenzhen here at Shenzhen Team. For three days, 20 eager entrepreneurs will both learn and work on their own startups. If you are a student, designer, developer, or just enthusiastic about starting your own company, this is something to not miss.

We are aiming for September 2nd to the 4th….we know that is one and a half weeks away….but so many people at Startup Tuesdays want it, we are gonna see how many applicants we can get, we have a good amount of support from mentors and judges and sponsors.


Here is a quick overview of what to expect:

Friday, 7pm:

Intro/Meet and Greet
Startup Lifecycle and Weekend Plans
Brainstorming and Teaming up (groups up to 3 people)
Initial Planning

Saturday, 9am:

Coffee
Business Models vs. Business Plans
Prototype, Develop, and Plan (Teams working on their startups)

Sunday, 9am:

Coffee
Continue to Prototype, Develop, and Plan

Sunday 7pm:

Team Demos
Break for Judging
Announcement of Winners

We are working on getting some sponsors for the weekend, so we can have prizes available for the top teams. Also, we will attempt to have a wide range of judges available for the final demos, including investors and successful entrepreneurs.

The space will be limited to 20 participants, please fill out the form here. Also email [email protected] with BootUP in the subject and a short description of why you want to be part of BootUP! and what skills and interests you might have. We will try to select a balanced group with a range of skill sets.

If you are a student, designer, developer, or just enthusiastic about starting your own company, this is something to not miss.

Similar events around the world have resulted in real, viable businesses or have connected up founders that went on to make a successful business together.

We had a discussion at the last Startup meetup, and one of the big topics was the arrangement of the ownership of the work done during BootUP!. The gist is, if you have a very awesome idea that you want to have clear control of, don’t do it for this event. We would prefer that people focus on doing something interesting and go through the process while getting to know other people and keep that killer idea to start later once you have a better idea of who you want to partner with.

APPLY NOW!
