ACE Beijing, the first overseas chapter of the Action Community for Entrepreneurship, has welcomed its first batch of 14 Singapore start-ups interested in venturing into China, four months after its launch.

The Singaporean entrepreneurs brought with them ideas ranging from online car rental to digital image recognition. Besides hearing from experienced entrepreneurs at the ACE BlueSky Conference @ Beijing, the rookies also got to sharpen their selling skills at the event, pitching their business plans to a panel of judges. And building connections was what they did at the conference, which was also attended by guests like Mr Mo Weigang, who’s in charge of entrepreneurship for the Communist Youth League in Beijing.

Veteran Singaporean entrepreneurs and businessmen like Mr Douglas Foo of the Sakae Sushi chain and Mr Bennett Neo, regional director of Asia Pacific Breweries as well as China-based investors like Mr Jui Tan, partner of BlueRun Ventures were also present at the event to give their advice.
