Business would be boring if it wasn't for the tech entrepreneurs turning geek into gold, so the biggest conference on rising star China's online moguls and tech innovation should be quite the draw. Expect bright ideas, serious players and even a little bit of adulation.
The last Chinict I attended was two years ago and as much as I was impressed by what the founder of China's Internet had to say, other high profile attendees, and lunch, it was the crazy networking going on that made the biggest impression. There was an embarrassing number of opportunities to meet and greet, and everyone was dead keen to introduce their ideas. Either that or somebody who had already cashed in their idea was telling an audience that hung onto every word how they could do the same.
"It's a community of entrepreneurs," says Chinict founder and president Franck Nazikian, comfortably seated at his favorite Italian eatery on a recent afternoon in the capital. "We're just putting everybody together and then we'll see what happens."
