Discovering Possibilities

Tech SHow

MIT-CHIEF Tech-Show is a science fair co-hosted by MIT-CHIEF and MIT Hong Kong Innovation Node. The Tech-Show is aimed to showcase cutting-edge high-tech products and introduce scientific achievements that have great commercialization potentials from MIT innovation labs. This event will include products from industries such as artificial intelligence, robotics, fintech and biotech. We believe that this tech-show will provide investors and established companies with cutting-edge innovations and potential unicorns at early stages. For MIT labs, potential funding can be supplied and the application of science results can be accelerated by industry resources and market capital. Additionally, technologies with great market potential will be invited to join MIT-CHIEF Co-Founder’s Journey and China Trip, where teams can establish and expand their ventures in China through MIT-CHIEF’s connections to established manufacturers in Pearl River Delta area and Chinese capital and government venture resources in major cities.
