Those who want to innovate should look to China's Tech Megactity – Shenzhen – The place where the Dragon was born ... and it was not by mere coincidence.
Over the past 30 years, the fishing village of Shenzhen has been reborn as a futuristic metropolis bursting with factories. It is the heartland of China’s tech revolution, dubbed the Silicon Valley of hardware. Now it is a boomtown, the likes of which the world has never seen before.
We have always perceived China as the place for cheap, low-quality manufacturing. But the truth is that Shenzhen has risen to become the predominant epicenter of high-tech design and manufacturing in the world. It is been rebranded as "Designed in China" instead of "Made in China" with views to position the country as a place that can invent, design and innovate
Shenzhen has a complete ecosystem that contains everything needed for all stages of electronics production all in one place. This has turned the city into a staging ground for large high-tech companies, rising startups, and independent innovators from all over the world looking to get their stuff made as efficiently as possible.
With tens of thousands of factories, 5,000 product integrators, and thousands of design houses, this city has become a one-stop shop for anything consisting of circuits, chips, LEDs, and touchscreens.
This is where our partner company – Moslink – is based. Where the Dragon LED Neurons are carefully crafted, and where our lab for future innovations takes place.
Shenzhen production is super agile, they are global innovation leaders and are in charge of making the processes as efficient as possible. Everyone's on the hunt for new ideas, products, and markets.
As China transitions to a more developed, more mature high-tech sector, the country is seeding innovation and economic growth in new ways. Entering the makers. This diverse segment of do-it-yourself hardware designers, tinkerers, innovators, and entrepreneurs aim, at root, to make amazing things happen.
