Just now on stage at the ChinaBang conference in Beijing, Lilly Huang, Head of Entrepreneur Services Group from Silicon Valley Bank announced the launch of X-Founder Club in partnership with TechNode. The mission of the club is to become a premier community for China’s best start-up founders and entrepreneurs.

The club has been established, based on the belief that founders don’t just need money but support from a high quality community of other founders to exchange ideas and experience. The partnership between Silicon Valley Bank and TechNode is a great fit because Silicon Valley Bank has over 20 years experience directly from the Silicon Valley, in helping guide start-ups to success and TechNode has garnered a position of influence in China’s local tech start-up community. TechNode is committed to fostering China’s entrepreneurial ecosystem and encouraging true innovation.

To create the first club members, the winners of the ChinaBang Awards and TechNode’s startup competition will form the original members of the X-Founder club. Other members can apply or be specially referred.
