On May 15, the 2nd Shanghai Innovation and Entrepreneurship Youth 50 Forum was held in Shanghai Tower. Li Qiang, member of the Political Bureau of Central Committee of CPC and Secretary of Shanghai Municipal Committee of CPC, met with the delegates before the forum began. Wu Qing, member of the Standing Committee of the Municipal Committee of CPC and Vice Mayor of Shanghai, and Weng Zuliang, Secretary of the Pudong Committee of CPC, delivered speeches at the opening ceremony.
Secretary Li Qiang congratulated on the convening of the 2nd Shanghai Innovation and Entrepreneurship Youth 50 Forum and thanked everyone for their contributions to serving economic and social development and promoting youth innovation and entrepreneurship. He pointed out that the city of Shanghai has always been full of entrepreneurial passion and innovative vitality, and urgently needs a large number of promising young people who are committed to innovation and entrepreneurship. He said: The young people are in the best time of innovation and entrepreneurship, and should live up to youth and the present time, integrate individual pursuit into national development and urban progress, and write down their own stories of fighting and contribute wisdom in the great cause of national rejuvenation.
Since the first forum was held, the Shanghai Tower, under the leadership of the Chengtou Group, has taken the initiative to actively participate in the cause of helping young people with their innovation and entrepreneurship, committed to becoming the "flagship store" of Shanghai's innovation and entrepreneurship. Through the enhanced communication and coordination with the United Front Work Department and the Organization Department of the Municipal Party Committee, the Shanghai Committee of Chinese Communist Youth League, and the Pudong New Area, the Shanghai Tower established the first incubation base of the Forum in accordance with the goal of "accurate positioning, excellent conditions, and leading services", so that young people can enter the core CBD at the entrepreneurial stage and dock top upstream and downstream resources. It allows more innovative and entrepreneurial forces to be infused into the prohibitive high-cost CBD considered by start-up enterprises traditionally. At present, more than 20 start-up and growing enterprises have settled in BASE 632 on the 13th floor of Shanghai Tower, covering artificial intelligence, computer services, financial investment, compliance consulting, legal consulting, international trade and other major fields.
This is the second consecutive year that the Shanghai Tower has served as the venue of the Shanghai Innovation and Entrepreneurship Youth 50 Forum. After some efforts, the Shanghai Tower was officially designated as the permanent venue of the Forum. The Shanghai Tower is also one of the initiators of the "Shanghai Youth 50 Innovation and Entrepreneurship Institute". For the Shanghai Tower, the designation represents not just the recognition and trust of the municipal officials and relevant departments to the tower's long-time active promotion of youth innovation and entrepreneurship, but also gains of the tower's series of initiative actions in helping innovation and entrepreneurship.
