WHY EXPLORING SHENZHEN ?

The world factory and heart of innovation in supply chain

#SupplyChain #Prototype

What was a fishing village 30 years ago has transformed into the world main factory and is now considered as the “heart of innovation”. A place where it is possible to go from concept to reality more rapidly than anywhere else in the world, thanks to its unique ecosystem of makers, hardware startups (Makeblock), incubators (Haxlr8r, SeedsStudio), factories (Foxconn) and electronics retailers.

The capital of electronics and IoT

#Electronics #Hardware #IOT

Many eletronics companies have established themselves in Shenzhen to be close to the factories and benefit from this hardware ecossytem. Shenzhen hosts the world leaders of drones DJI and Parrot and the premium but affordable smartphones manufacturer OnePlus.

The heart of the Shanzai culture and the Maker movement

#MakersMovement

The Shanzhai culture copies and “augments” existing products with a Chinese, counterfeit touch, a symbol of the Chinese industrious and entrepreneurial mindset. Maker Faire Shenzhen gains traction and become both a giant showroom and a conference with good networking opportunities.

The world's largest genetic-research center

#Genomics #Biology #DNA

Shenzhen is home to a different kind of factory: B.G.I., formerly called Beijing Genomics Institue, the world’s largest genetic-research center. With 178 machines to sequence the precise order of the billions of chemicals within a molecule of DNA, B.G.I. produces at least a quarter of the world’s genomic data—more than Harvard University, the National Institutes of Health, or any other scientific institution.
