Abstract:     
Some of China's most successful entrepreneurs and founders of private enterprises naturally came together to share the insights and tactics that helped them and their businesses survive and thrive in China's rapidly changing business environment. Soon, the group's mandate expanded to include improving the environment for private business in China and conducting outreach to help spread the word about the important role entrepreneurs played in a modern market economy. How has the China Entrepreneurs Forum been an innovative business and social organization in modern China? What lies in the future for them?

Learning Objective: As a country not known for innovation or entrepreneurship, how has the CEF dispelled the notion that China is not or cannot be innovative or that private companies cannot thrive in the country? The CEF, supported by some of China's most well-known and well-connected business leaders, is hoping to be thought leaders in China's business realm.
