‘Incubating Creativity: from Edinburgh to Shenzhen’

Back in 2013, Edinburgh and Shenzhen undertook a commitment to develop links between the creative and tech sectors in both cities. Since then, incubators have been opened to reflect the partnership; in Edinburgh at the Creative Exchange; and in Shenzhen at the F518 ‘Idea Land’.

Following this, Edinburgh and Shenzhen embarked on a series of projects to maximise potential, made possible by thesupport services offered by Edinburgh and Shenzhen. For selected companies in Edinburgh’s tech and creative sectors, the incubator offers free office facilities to companies that wish to explore the Chinese market, tailored support on how to set up and do business in China and crucially, introductions to a network of like-minded people to do business with.

The story so far has been one of success;  with several companies (LiveCodeSensewhere) already settled into their new creative and business homes in Shenzhen. The incubator is a hub of creativity, a beacon of Edinburgh’s wide ranging global reach and an international showcase of its talent.
