The Story of BóLè (伯樂相馬):

The Forum's name, BóLè, is inspired by an old Chinese idiom. It signifies visionary who possesses sharp eyes for talent (before anyone else) and who empowers such talent with the guidance and the opportunities to flourish — qualities that we want to find, celebrate and harness at the Chicago Booth Angels Network. At the inaugural BóLè Forum, we have invited an exclusive group of BóLè from around the world to Hong Kong this spring. 

What Makes the BóLè Forum Unique:

Winner's Blessings - Award-winning speakers and experts candidly speak about their successes and lessons learned in their years of battles.
Theory + Practice - How and to what extent practitioners apply investment and entrepreneurship theories in the real world to stand out as “best-in-class”.
East Meets West - Similarities and differences among China, US and Europe investors, and their impact on cross- border innovations.
