2019-11-20 origin:China Area

The 2019 Global Best Innovation 100 (GBI100) Competition is an international competition that features R&D and innovation. The Competition is organised by the Organising Committee of the GBI100 Competition, and co-organised by the CBT100 Forum, Xishan District of Wuxi, Xinjiang Zhongtai Group, Chinese Universities (East China / South China) Science and Technology Achievement Transformation Centres and the Association for Collaborative Leadership (ACL). Partners of the Competition also include but are not limited to China Technology Exchange and MetaLab. The Competition provides 100 award-winning opportunities, with the highest prize worthy of 1 million US dollars.  


CBT100 companies are the most profitable 500 companies in China. In recent years, the annual profits generated by CBT100 companies have accounted for about 95% of the total profits of all listed companies in China. Therefore, CBT100 companies are the driving forces of economic development in China. In 2018, CBT100 companies collectively generated a total profit of 4.4 trillion yuan and a total revenue of 33.7 trillion yuan. If CBT100 companies take 2% of their revenue to purchase and invest in science and technology achievements, the capital pool will reach a huge scale of 674 billion yuan (about 100 billion US dollars), which should have great appeal to international science and technology achievements. Therefore, the GBI100 Competition will be the largest innovation-themed competition in the world in terms of scale, bonus and investment power.
