It is December, 2017 – seven years have passed since this SZteam idea kicked off. I remember the meetups and the discussions to get this off the ground. We were way too early. People in Shenzhen – as well as the rest of the world – had no idea what coworking was. Why not just work in a Starbucks was what most people said. Now coworking is everywhere – in Shenzhen, Hong Kong, and around the world. While the physical office SZteam closed years ago, we said we would be back. We are working hard to help connect the community […]
After a great startup Tuesday, we asked the audience for volunteers to Different types of volunteer help: a) help find speakers / startups to present at the weekly meeting b) help keep meetings on track, we are going to have more and more people coming to events, help with people who need to RSVP to get priority seating (and those who don’t rsvp can stand), just stuff during the meetings. maybe also with introducing people c) BIGGER events – we really want to have a pitch night, and those have to be a bigger location / venue. Maybe you can […]

After a great turnout from the Fist Startup Tuesday in Shenzhen, we listened to people and feel there is a great desire for a support community and hub for startups….but there were quite a few people who just need some basic understanding of what is a startup, how to get involved in one, and other basics. So we will start a series in the next few meetings going through various phases of a startup and get ideas and input from the community. Also at this meetup, we will discuss about a startup WEEKEND and discuss when / if there is […]

We structured it as such: Round table […]
As you may have noticed currently our website is somewhat incongruous with our Shenzhen Team logo and colour scheme: …also we don’t really have many photographs on the site of the current space and facilities.
