Similar to China's economic structure, it is not the big companies that create the miracle of American economy, but the vibrant SMEs. At present, China is experiencing the era of "encourage people to start businesses and make innovations". My research results about industry in US can be used as reference to China’s enterprise innovation and industrial upgrading, the service and management of SMEs incubation bases.
