(Reuters) – University student and aspiring businesswoman Sophia Jiang has an idea for a website in China that could help students like her.

She envisions a space where people with an innovative idea about a new technology could “meet” — at least in the cyber-sense — so they can research it together.

Similar websites exist in other countries, but there’s no such thing in China, 22-year-old Jiang said recently between classes in Shanghai, a buzzing port city of 24 million people.

Her website doesn’t yet have a name, she says, but maybe it could be a word that means “the light of the future.”
