Sometimes while walking around Beijing on a nice sunny day, a bright startup idea pops into our minds. We then start to think how cool it would be, what it would look like, how much money you could make and if you could be the next Instagram that sells to a Facebook for $1 Billion! But after some time, the idea starts to fade and eventually it amounts to lost brain energy and potentially a future “I thought of that!” moment.

But what if there was a forum or workshop to share these ideas, bounce them around with like minded entrepreneurs’ and see how far you can take it into reality? That’s why instead of hosting another keynote speech/panel discussion we are experimenting with a workshop called ‘Ideas MeshUp Workshop’.

Held at Big Bang Café in Guomao, a start-up co-working space, the day will run like this. Firstly, Peng Ong, Partner of GSR Ventures and former serial entrepreneur and co-founder of Match.com and Interwoven (NASDAQ:IWOV) will give short presentation about his journey as an entrepreneur. Then it’s time for the fun to begin, with the interactive workshop. Participants will split into small groups and start to share and brainstorm a new concept for a mobile app that will make life easier in China. It could be anything! During the thinking time, Peng and the TechNode team will mingle and give feedback. At the conclusion of the brainstorming session, teams will be required to present their idea and explain what problem they are trying to solve, how the mobile app would work and what it looks like. Peng will then judge who he deems has the best concept to turn into reality and giver general feedback.
