Global Innovation Awards

Focused on “Innovation, Capital and Internationalization,” our annual Global Innovation Awards (GIA) was created to celebrate global entrepreneurship and support startups in China, the United States, Israel, Europe and Latin America.

While connecting more than 100 top global innovation incubators, accelerators and VCs, GIA aims to discover, cultivate and invest in the world’s most promising startups, taking full advantage of China’s capital markets to build an ecosystem under the principle of “Global Innovation, Global Capital.”

As part of GIA, the top 20 global winners each year in the fields of web and mobile applications, FinTech, big data, enterprise software, AR/VR, cyber security, Internet of Things (IoT), digital health and other industries present their businesses at the Global Innovation Awards Finals in Beijing, China. All winners receive investment from Peakview as well as national exposure to investors and the largest growth companies in China.

The Global Innovation Awards is a testament to China’s growing role in venture investing and capital support for companies seeking a global presence. It was initiated by Shengjing Group and co-sponsored by Zhongguancun Innovation in Enterprise Development Promotion Association, Peakview Capital Managment, F50, Deutsche Telekom, and JVP with its strategic partners Tsinghua Holdings, Zhongguancun Development Group, Zhongguancun VC Development Center, Etown Capital and Zhongguancun InnoWay.
