China Focuses on Innovation at SXSW 2014

SXSW (South by Southwest) is the highly anticipated annual music, film and interactive festival and conference that takes place in Austin, Texas. With great excitement, myself and April will be attending the Interactive portion of the conference.

There are many keynotes, panels, and workshops that we are looking forward to such as “Go Home Marketing, You are Drunk” featuring Kristina Halvorson, and “The Hard think About the Hard Things” featuring Ben Horowitz. In addition, we have also put together a list of China focused events at SXSW Interactive 2014.

The theme of the China focused events this year seem to be around innovation. Contrary to the common belief or impression that China is good at taking products that are invented elsewhere in the world and deriving from it, China is actually playing a significant role in creative innovation.

Check out these events for a deeper dive:

Made with China: Hackers, Makers & Manufacturers

China Tech 101 – Innovation & Internationalization

How Overcrowded Asia Cities Inspire Innovation

More on the innovation theme, this panel below is also highly relevant to us. We are looking forward to hearing about the new ways of thinking that’s being applied in the world’s largest and fastest growing economy from the inspirational panelists.

Co-Creation by Design: Asia, Women & Innovation
