About this book

This book presents for the first time a detailed and comprehensive interpretation of Zhongguancun, China’s first national self-dependent innovation demonstration zone.  Explored in the book are examples of world-class, leading enterprises in fields, such as the Internet, big data, artificial intelligence, green and low-carbon, modern supply chain and high-end service.  According to some data, the rate of contribution to the economic increase of Beijing made by Zhongguancun rose to 36.8% in 2015 from 17.9% in 2010.  More specifically, in 2015, nearly 40% of the economic increase in Beijing was contributed by Zhongguancun Science Park.  By 2017, Zhongguancun fostered 650 gazelle enterprises and 70 unicorn companies.

The book also uniquely provides readers with a panoramic interpretation of the environment for innovation and entrepreneurship in Zhongguancun.  It is mainly divided into three parts: History of Zhongguancun, Data of Zhongguancun, Cases of Zhongguancun and Policies of Zhongguancun. Through the depiction of history, data, cases and policy, this book clarifies that in most cases, enterprises in Zhongguancun become successes by following such a road characterized by starting from scratch and by relying on science and technology innovation and expanding from small to big by virtue of the capital market.    ““Zhongguancun Model: Driving the Dual Engines of Science & Technology and Capital” deepens the reader’s understanding of  the new economy development in China and is essential reading for business/management researchers and practitioners, economists, IT specialists, and IT policy makers around the world.
