Apsara Conference 2022｜Everyone wants to ride the wind and waves in innovation and entrepreneurship, but the reality is that the environment is highly uncertain.
"Innovation and entrepreneurship are a game for the brave from the moment they set out." Liu Xiangwen, vice president of Alibaba Cloud Intelligence and general manager of the Marketing and Public Service Department, expressed emotion at the Alibaba Yunqi Conference on September 17.
Apsara Conference 2022｜In this Jumanji game, this year's contestants need more courage.
"In itself, for innovative entrepreneurs, the market is changing rapidly. What entrepreneurs need is to actively adjust the dynamics, identify customers and needs, and polish innovation in the midst of uncertainty. However, in 2020, the outbreak of the new crown worldwide The epidemic, the lethality of the black swan of the epidemic has run through the entire human history, and the entire economic and industrial chain seems to be reconstructing at full speed overnight, adding a word "more" to these uncertainties. In an era of high uncertainty, look for certainty , become the top priority of every entrepreneur." Liu Xiangwen explained.
Where will the next new entrepreneurial direction be?
certainty in uncertainty
Since the beginning of this year, from the perspective of the entire business ecology, the online economy has been heated up by the epidemic, and new business models are emerging. For example, online office, online consumption, and online learning are more and more accepted by everyone. These online businesses Behavior has gone from being a new thing to an indispensable new normal.
"However, both for large enterprises and small and medium-sized enterprises, the upgrading of enterprise data and intelligence, the cloudification of infrastructure and the entire cloud ecosystem are still in their infancy or immature. It is still in the initial stage, indicating that there is a blue ocean, and the next The direction of entrepreneurship is here." Liu Xiangwen said, "On the other hand, the growth of the real economy is slowing down, which needs to be driven and transformed by digitalization."
In recent years, due to the combined effects of multiple factors such as the slowdown in global economic growth and rising production costs, my country's real economy has experienced problems such as slowing growth and declining efficiency.
From 2017 to 2019, my country's GDP growth rates were 6.95%, 6.75% and 6.11% respectively. This data has been falling, and the growth of the digital economy has shown a rapid development trend.
The 2019 "Digital China Index Report" pointed out that the national digital economy in 2018 was 29.91 trillion yuan, an increase of 12.02% over the same period last year, and its proportion in GDP rose from 32.28% to 33.22%. In addition, the Global Institute research report shows that as China moves towards a new era of digitalization, from 2013 to 2025, the Internet will account for 0.3% to 1.0% of the annual growth rate of China's economy.
Therefore, my country's digital development has entered a new stage of kinetic energy transformation, and the digital industry has become the main engine of digital development.
Now digital intelligence has become an important way to promote technological and social progress. Because the soil of digital intelligence is the social and economic infrastructure, the core element of technological evolution, and a new opportunity for innovation and entrepreneurship.
Now that digital intelligence has become the trend of future development, for innovative entrepreneurs, what opportunities can this wave of digital intelligence innovation be seized?
The next entrepreneurial direction is in "digital intelligence"
Liu Xiangwen believes that the new opportunities are first from the perspective of the new ecology. The cloud-based digital intelligence ecosystem, including cloud native, data native, and cloud industry Internet, has new opportunities.
From a specific direction, the five areas of digital intelligence include infrastructure cloudification, touch point digitization, business online, operational data and intelligent decision-making.
From ecology to category, it is an opportunity for innovation and entrepreneurship. For traditional industries, they need digitization to optimize and improve efficiency. For example, in the medical care we are currently seeing, there are many details and experiences that have not been fully digitized; non-traditional industries have entered the digital age, and the processing of information and data, There are still opportunities for innovation in storage and analysis, the carrying capacity of infrastructure, the research and development of major core technologies such as cloud operating systems and networks.
Alibaba Cloud Innovation Center: Let technology-based SMEs ride the "cloud" to ride the waves
The key part of the digital infrastructure is the "cloud", and the investment in the cloud business itself is very large. Alibaba Cloud hopes to build a platform similar to a water plant, so that all enterprises can drink water as long as they are connected to the water pipe. What Alibaba Cloud wants to do is to make it easier for all enterprises to use data, so that more enterprises can enjoy the dividends of technological development.
What Alibaba Cloud's innovation center does is to become an innovation and entrepreneurship platform for technology-based SMEs based on cloud computing infrastructure.
"In the past five years, the Alibaba Cloud Innovation Center has been exploring and launching customized service packages for SMEs in the start-up, growth and maturity stages. We have successively launched innovation empowerment platforms and innovation center bases. , Innovation Summit, Entrepreneurship Competition, Entrepreneurship Training, and Track Star Class have also become star projects that accompany nearly 1 million small and medium-sized enterprises on the platform. With Alibaba Cloud Innovation Center as the carrier, the technology and innovation enterprises on the platform are also closely related to the Alibaba ecosystem in technology. There are various forms of interaction and cooperation in business, talent, and ecology," said Liu Xiangwen.
In simple terms, this is also a model of people, goods, markets, and ecology: in the growth period, we found Alibaba's ecological partners; then we provide products, technologies, business opportunities, investment and financing, finance, taxation, and personnel at the same time. In the offline scenario model, we have established different innovation support bases in various places, as well as entrepreneurial competitions, accelerators and training courses with different themes, hoping to fully support our entrepreneurial enterprises online and offline.
Liu Xiangwen introduced that taking the track stars as an example, since its launch in August 2018, more than 100 star entrepreneurs have joined, Ali has more than 60 business lines, and 200 capitals have communicated and connected in this class, and they are learning and growing together. , and also contributed to more business growth. "In two years, we have facilitated '1000+' business cooperation with Alibaba, with a total of 64 investments."
Taking the innovation empowerment platform as an example, during the epidemic, 186 live broadcasts of innovation and entrepreneurship, 21 cloud roadshows, and more than 600 innovative resources in 11 categories were held on the platform for everyone to receive with one click. Online has been favored by more and more innovative entrepreneurs because of its convenience and participation anytime, anywhere. This will be done on a regular basis and will be wonderful.
At this Yunqi Conference, Alibaba Cloud Innovation Center released three new products for innovation and entrepreneurship. Offline, the industry innovation center base is developed around the five major sectors of cloud platform, cloud application innovation, industrial Internet, new retail, and financial technology; online, the innovation empowerment platform is becoming a one-click platform for enterprises to receive innovation and entrepreneurship resources. In terms of personalized services for startups, Alibaba Cloud Accelerator will provide startups with full-lifecycle innovative and entrepreneurial products and services, help startups integrate closely into the Alibaba ecosystem, and obtain targeted support for investment, financing, and media promotion.
Liu Xiangwen hopes that innovation and entrepreneurship will flourish on the "cloud", and that Alibaba Cloud Innovation Center will also use its own strength and the society to welcome the "digital intelligence era".
