There are about 140 high-speed trains daily from Hangzhou to Shanghai, the largest city in China and a renowned international metropolis. The journey with the high-speed train to Shanghai takes about 45 minutes, while the journey to Beijing lasts for about 6 hours.  

The conference will provide an opportunity to discuss latest trends, key issues, opportunities and challenges in the areas of entrepreneurship, innovations, and sustainability and see how business/management education can better support these processes to foster more effective entrepreneurship development around the world.
