Liwan district, Guangzhou recently signed a contract with Aliyun, Alibaba's cloud computing subsidiary, to build an innovation center to boost the region's cloud and artificial intelligence industries.

The Aliyun Innovation Center, to be located in the Hexiang Town Innovation Park, will cover an area of over 20,000 square meters. It is equipped with apartments for talents and is expected to host 50 to 100 innovative groups.

The innovation center will help upstream and downstream enterprises in the cloud industry develop and prosper, and will also aid the local government in incubating innovative startups, according to Zhao Zhenggang, a senior official from Aliyun.

In the future, Liwan and Aliyun will work together to incubate a range of technology companies involved in cloud computing, big data, AI application, and R&D, and provide services for smart manufacturing and new retail firms across Guangzhou and cities on the west bank of the Pearl River.

Startups facing difficulties will be able to communicate directly with the innovation center, which will provide them with Aliyun's best integrated resources. One of the resources is the FengChi Startup Support Program, which aims to provide free offices, financing channels, and marketing resources for innovative talents, which will hopefully cut company startup costs and help companies realize their dreams.
