Cradle Program

Inherited from the experience of the AAMA Beijing and Taipei Chapters, the cradle program of our Pearl River Delta Chapter was also implemented in 2016. The philosophy is to promote the growth and progress of entrepreneurs in the Pearl River Delta (now the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area). Every year, ten outstanding figures in technology, business management and investment are invited as mentors for more than ten selected mentees in a one-to-one manner for a period of two years.

So far, we have accumulated more than 40 experienced instructors, and cooperated with Hong Kong and Shenzhen partners to provide incubation venues, mentee training, entrepreneurship salons, overseas visits and exchanges, and other activities!


In the days to come, we will strengthen the learning experience of the workshop, and ride on the digital economy to promote innovation and entrepreneurship to all corners of the Greater Bay Area, and jointly move towards internationalization!
