They were from various areas such as information technology, digital creative, biomedicine, green & low carbon and high-end manufacturing.

Following on from this, these 22 enterprises will receive support from the government in terms of preferential policies, fund-raising, industrial match-making and talent training. They will be prioritized when applying for city-level financial funding and qualification authentication.

Meanwhile, the entries will be recommended to domestically renowned investment funds and venture investment institutions to gain investment, while being introduced to leading enterprises in the domain for match-making.
