New start-ups becoming China’s buzz

In the last few years, China’s entrepreneurship market saw blooming amounts of start-up companies. It has been common for Chinese commerce graduates to aim at creating their own business, and plan well-ahead for their future ambitions. The competition with larger, more well-known companies , is what drives them to succeed in their career.

In 2015, there was a whopping 4.4 million new start-up companies across China, an increase of 21.6% from the previous year. According to Chief Executive at Alphawolf, Wang Naichen, the increase in company start-ups is largely influence by the politics. It has been said that government officials encourage the public to launch their own business, in some cases providing funds in order to help establish their start-up. By the end of 2015, people only had to get licenses approved by government administrators for their businesses, making procedures much easier.

However, these statistics do not prove China’s business performances. While the Chinese market is very active, the quality of business is not very high, with a lack of innovation in business strategies. These factors must be improved before further development can be made. Compared to American entrepreneurships, their start-ups are much more stable and focus heavily on effectiveness and quality. On the other hand, Chinese start-ups have been made out to be one of 10 most valuable  companies in the world.
