In 2017, several entrepreneurs, including our TAC members Michael Condry and Oliver Yu, have co-founded the Global Association of Innovators and Entrepreneurs (GA) for the purpose of connecting and facilitating public and private resources to innovators and entrepreneurs around the world. In November, GA organized a successful smart manufacturing conference in China, attracting 400 attendees and 24 entrepreneurs from US, Europe, and Japan. GA has also just been awarded a 5-year US$8 million contract to develop an international innovation center for a major Chinese city. John Zhang, GA’s President of Greater China Area, plans to participate in 2008 TEMS ISIE in Beijing.
Thanks and best wishes,
