What started out as a fishing village with less than 300,000 inhabitants fifty years ago, Shenzhen has now become a robust factory-city. As the world's leading manufacturing and hardware hub, Shenzen hosts prototypes and small-scale projects of all types — many of which turn into scaleable startups.

China has cheaper production and labor costs than any other global market, and startups are able to thrive in this lower-risk environment. As a result, "Internet of Things" (IoT) and hardware startup founders have flocked to the city in recent years. Students looking to explore the hardware or manufacturing industries should look no further than Shenzen.
