Instead of recreating the business myths of their predecessors, it is better to create new myths themselves.’ Speaking of the entrepreneurial wave of young Chinese, the famous financial writer Wu Xiaobo commented at the luncheon. ‘The future opportunity belongs to companies that make products. China’s overall consumption energy still needs to be expanded. The first is to improve efficiency. The second is the elimination of backward production capacity, and the industry will increasingly gather. The future economic situation for entrepreneurs The dividend of the mobile Internet has basically ended, and the opportunities for business model innovation are actually very small. The potential opportunities in the future are companies that lurk in platforms like Global Catcher to make products. ‘
