The SHIF green building technology incubator is to help explore business opportunities in China and identifying investment partners in the capital market.

SHIF and USGBC’s are working together to promote the green building industry and LEED in China. To that end, SHIF will provide most of its services to USGBC members at no cost. More than 80 USGBC members have already certified LEED projects in China.

Yes, Shanghai is the economic heart of China and a center of new round of reform and open up of the Chinese market. The cost is higher (especially the rent), so it may worth to consider the smaller town with convenient transportation means. However, if the rent is not to be considered. Shanghai is a particular place to set your foot in China.
Our company KKECO is also located in GBTI, extensively provide LEED related service and solutions. GBTI is a great place and platform for guys who want to start their business, they have good policies for Green Building company.
