Accenture recently led major safaris with European-based enterprises to over 50 companies in five Chinese cities. Highlights include:

  • CIIE Summit Retail Safari - Attendees networked with c-level executives from large companies, startups and unicorns, including at a match making event for 200 companies hosted by Accenture and the Department of Commerce of Zhejiang Province.
  • Transport & Mobility China Safari - Visited leading transportation tech startups in Tencent and DiDi in Shenzhen and reinforced the idea that as AI increasingly disrupts industries, all must strive to make AI accessible, affordable and actionable.
  • Financial Services Safari - Executives learned about innovative digital payment solutions, meeting with 11 companies.
  • Safari 4.0 - Participants learned how relatively unknown Chinese unicorns are creating new business models, adopting changes in production, analyzing the implications to Western companies, and identifying potential Chinese tech partners.
