China-US Future Business Leaders Exchange

With the goal of developing youth entrepreneurship in mind, CULDF has developed the Future Business Leaders initiative to prepare young talents for success in every walk of life. CULDF is targeting new entrepreneurs who rose to success riding the latest wave of digital revolution, as well as 2nd generation entrepreneurs inheriting their family business.

CULDF is concerned chiefly with the discovery, development and analysis of youth leaders in both China and the US. Through schemes such as youth leader exchanges and international Private Advisory Board, CULDF aims to strengthen cooperation between Chinese and American youth leaders, contributing to the establishment of a new world rich in globalization, integration, international harmony, health and safety, and sustainable development.
