Entrepreneur Magazine’s Dark Horse Entrepreneur Competition has become one of the most influential and authoritative venture start-up competitions in China in recent years. Aiming to uncover potential dark horse start-ups, the competition helps pair top start-ups with investors to further fund their growth. Start-ups must pass through two qualifying rounds and the seasonal finals in the spring, summer, and fall in order to reach the annual finals at the end of each year. Approximately 1 billion RMB of investments are made each year through the competition, helping spur the next phase of growth in China’s top budding enterprises.
