Especially since the 2002, driven by the municipal governments’ strategy of developing information industry preferentially, and the district government’s development plan that regards software industry development as new growth engines of the district, Xuhui Software Base paid special attention to the integration of the resources of enterprises, and opened up the value-added services, took a broad view of the whole country and going out to the world, and built up the brand name of the base, and thus realized a development by leaps. 1. Serving the enterprises and building up the brand The Xuhui Software Base keeps on the consistent "nurse service" consciousness, placing serving enterprise above the other things all the time, while seeking the resources of various fields for enterprises’ development and reducing the commercial costs of enterprises. First of all, we offer the unblocked channel for enterprises’ project and fund application. The development of enterprises can not continue without financial support, so that the Software Base actively support enterprises’ fund-raising activities for financing their projects. In the past few years, many enterprises successfully transformed their research achievements after obtaining "Project Fund for Developing the Northwest of China" and the innovative fund, or the development fund of District Informationization Commission and outstanding scientific and technological industrialization fund of State Scientific and Technological Commission of the District, as well as the support of 863 Program Fund of State Scientific and Technological Commission of Shanghai etc.. Secondly, we seek the support of social resources. The Xuhui Software Base insists on the services of "four bridges" between the enterprise and government, the enterprise and market, the enterprise and finance and within enterprises. We prepared actively to construct "Software Association of Xuhui", which had independent legal person qualification and made up of software enterprises and individual members. The establishing of the Association will safeguard the member’s legitimate rights and interests, and strengthen the function of member services, thus improving enterprise’s own values, and promoting the development of our software industry in the district. Regarding the Software Association as handhold, the Software Base has launched a lot of salon activities, promoting the horizontal connection among software enterprises, and strengthening mutual supplement with each other’s advantages and integration of the resources among them. In addition, we also offer value-added service for enterprises. Among our "six centers", the Financial Value-added Service Center is set up to create a good capital market. The Base has established good partnership cooperation with many venture capital firms outside, and set up Xuhui Software Investment Management Company run by a team whose leader is Mr. Ji, a returned overseas Chinese student with P.H.D. degree who came back from Silicon Valley of U.S. to start an career with eight international patented software products, and who understood the internationalized standards and mode of enterprise’s value-added services very much. Their product of " Market Define Standard and Demonstrate Platform of Hi-Tech" got fund from " 863 " special subsidies of Shanghai State Scientific and Technological Commission, and they are cooperating with the Property Right Exchange of Shanghai, Shanghai Technology Property Right Exchange. Over 2,000 members of the two exchanges around the country and commercial investors all over the world could use this platform to seek the cooperative chances. This will form an internationalized capital market around the Base, offering value-added services and financing for enterprises in the Base. 2. Associating with outside, cooperating inside and consolidating sources The Xuhui Software Base is associating constantly with software developing organizations from the district or Shanghai, and even other domestic and international software enterprises, supplementing each other with their respective advantages and consolidating sources.
