When corporate unicorns meet city unicorn

 
Why do so many unicorns and new economy head enterprises come?
 
What kind of city will attract similar enterprises. On September 8, Wang Qingxian, member of the Standing Committee of the Shandong Provincial Party Committee and Secretary of the Qingdao Municipal Party Committee, interviewed in the CCTV News "On Relativity, All Cities Talk Together", and answered "What’s the most representative sentence in Qingdao?" by “Qingdao is an island of youth, an entrepreneurship city, and a "unicorn" city.
 
Why? Because Qingdao is a young and vibrant city, resonating with the state, psychology, and pursuit of young people, and has a spiritual temperament similar to "unicorn" enterprises with strong innovation and great growth potential.
 
Qingdao is not only a unicorn in cities, but also a city full of unicorns. On July 28th, Great Wall Strategic Consulting released a new list of Chinese unicorn companies where Qingdao has a total of 6 unicorn companies selected, making it a veritable "Northern Second City" amid Chinese unicorn companies.
 
Wang Delu, director of the Beijing Great Wall Enterprise Strategy Research Institute, said that large enterprises in Qingdao have become platforms incubating unicorns, which is a good phenomenon. He added, it is expectedc to join hands with Qingdao to build a new species breeding base in China.
 
Yuan Yi, vice president of JD Health, said that he hopes to establish a comprehensive industrial base project in Qingdao integrating health, big data and AI.
 

 
Like entrepreneurs, Qingdao is also quite urgent to development new economy.
 
In August, the Qingdao Municipal Government issued the "Opinions on Promoting the Development of New Economic Business Models", which will implement five major actions such as new infrastructure support, element resource protection, enterprise growth, application scenarios expansion, and development environment optimization to stimulate new consumer demand.
 
New species need new ecology. Real entrepreneurs are not just pursuing the natural scenery of Qingdao with "red tiles, green trees, blue sea and sky", who care more about whether the city's concept fits the pursuit of value and whether the entrepreneurial environment can nourish growth dreams.
 
The new economy has become the general trend, a historical trend that no one can stop, which is also an excellent opportunity for Qingdao to achieve its rise. The engagement of new economic leading enterprises batch after batch will serve the ladder of Qingdao's rise, which also create opportunities for more urban partners.
