Located in Shanghai Caohejing Emerging Technology Development Zone, i-Lab, a “national crowd creation space”, is a community for innovation and entrepreneurship jointly built by INESA (a Shanghai municipal state-owned assets management company), Shanghai Xuhui District People’s Government, and Microsoft China.

i-Lab has created an industrial innovation ecology community for the growth of small, medium and micro enterprises thanks to coordination of multiple parties. Specifically, Xuhui District People’s Government provides policy support, INESA provides venues, offices, operating teams and connection with the smart city industry, and Microsoft provides innovation resources such as cloud platform services and development tools. Focusing on the core fields of cloud computing, Internet, big data and artificial intelligence, i-Lab has offered innovation incubation and talent cultivation for start-ups, and created a sound eco-system for entrepreneurship.

i-Lab has a complete innovation incubation system. During the recruitment period, 10 to 20 teams were selected through strict standards and procedures. During the incubation period, technology giants such as Microsoft, Google, Tencent, and Roland Berger provided innovation resources and entrepreneurship tutoring. During the output period, incubation teams received accurate business opportunities and investment and financing resources to cover the “last mile” of entrepreneurship. Since its establishment, i-Lab has recruited a total of 172 innovation companies, of which 40 have received funds during the incubation period.
