Background of Battle Silicon
Battle Silicon is the first Silicon Valley-based Chinese reality television show and was awarded as the “Best Television Program Production” at NCCMA Outstanding Journalism Award Ceremony in 2013. It is a platform for startups in both English and Chinese to connect with entrepreneurs, investors, mentors and businesses of the United States and Asia. In order to obtain mentorship and funding from the movers and shakers, participating startups have to present their business ideas and model before a panel of judges, who will then assess the potential of each contestant’s project on multiple criteria and share their valuable industry knowledge and experience interactively in the half-hour program.
The show is broadcasted on American TV channels, main stream media and China Portal (v.ifeng.com, name of 鳳凰視頻) sites. It reached about 200million global audience including the USA and China region.
