The event also invited over 10 persons in charge of entrepreneurship investment organizations and incubators.

The 8 roadshow programs were mainly in the field of artificial intelligence, internet and biomedicine.

The Woniu Shuimian program, led by Gao Song, demonstrated to us the fun and practical use of the app. The app is distinctive for its recognition algorithm of dream talks and snoring and its users’ attention to its contents and market dominance. The program won the championship of the Entrepreneur Contest.
