Since its inception in 2011, the CHINABANG Awards has been dedicated to identifying and nurturing the power of innovation in China. Over the last decade, we have witnessed many innovative enterprises such as DiDi, Momo, DJI, Mobvoi, Ele. me, WeChat, and the Little Red Book evolved from humble beginnings to iconic symbols of China’s innovation landscape. At the same time, we have uncovered many exceptional individuals, most of whom have ascended to become highly regarded trailblazers in their respective industries.
Now, the CHINABANG Awards 2023 is officially underway! Since its inaugural launch in 2011, the list has undergone more than ten years of refinement and enhancement, marked by the continuous evolution of our selection process. This year, we have made another breakthrough by setting up the CHINABANG Awards -China’s Overseas New Power List. The list is dedicated to recognizing overseas innovation teams with strong ties to China, identifying the most promising and valuable overseas projects, and striving to create the most open and credible annual overseas accolade in the industry.
The CHINABANG Awards China’s Overseas New Power List aspires to spotlight innovative companies that have achieved breakthroughs in international emerging markets, as well as the innovative organizations and individuals who have played a pivotal role in bolstering China’s global influence. We will recognize companies that continue to explore overseas markets, exporting China’s technological prowess and influence, as well as pioneering entities contributing to the sustainable development of local business ecosystems during the process of localization. Above all, we will acknowledge Chinese overseas entrepreneurs, innovators, and entrepreneurial teams who have exhibited unwavering dedication to innovation throughout their journeys.
