Over the past 5 years, Zhongshan has steadily enhanced its innovation ability. In particular, the city has developed innovation-driven enterprises through high-tech enterprises development plan, which leads to the substantial growth of its high-tech enterprises.
Lifesense, which is located in National Health Technology Park in Zhongshan Torch Development Zone, is a high-tech enterprise at state level. Most of the company’s staff are young people born in the 1980s and 1990s. The company is mainly engaged in health management.
Before 2010, Lifesense focused on ODM exports and R&D of product application, so it was not thirsty for talents. But in the recent 5 years since 2012, the company upgraded itself and set foot on the Internet+ health management and smart wearable devices through gathering talents and improving its innovation ability. In late 2016, the company went public.
High-tech enterprises like Lifesense are the forerunners of Zhongshan’s innovation-driven development. According to Zhongshan Science and Technology Bureau, the number of Zhongshan high-tech enterprises quadrupled over the past 2 years, from 219 in 2014 to 882 in 2016.
Since 2015, Zhongshan has rolled out a series of policies to improve the system for high-tech enterprises development.
