About This Event

We are hosting a new style event in New York City to show the world that you have to learn from the past and that making sure your business is 'China Ready' is a BIG part of what success will look like in the future. We're going to throw it back to the 1990's and have some fun learning from these DotCom busts and also make sure everyone gets their applications into the THero 2018 'Are You China Ready' contest.

We’re looking back to the development of the Internet and DotComs in 1990’s. It’s a theme party with some fun examples of “startup scene”  back in the days.

 We'll hear pitches from exciting new companies like:

  • Ask Jeeves (an engine that searches for you!)

  • Pets dot com (you can order stuff for your pets on the Internet? Unbelievable!)

  • GeoCities (now, even YOU can make a website!)

  • eToys (trust us -- this will be the downfall of Toys-R-Us)

These folks are all looking for seed-stage investment, and we're pretty sure they need it. Some of their ideas are so far out there, you won't believe your ears.

Come join us at the theme party, and we will announce the Global Startup Contest that will help you to capture the China market opportunity!
