The ILHCRC unveiling ceremony and the department meetings were over. However, Luo Wenxuan was forced to stay in Shanghai and attend a certain number of meetings each month. Lu Zhou's work with the ILHCRC was finally over, for now.
As for the High-Tech Innovation and Investment Summit…
He was just there to look around, he didn't expect to invest in anything. The financing side of Beep Beep Charging would be taken over by Star Sky Technology. Lu Zhou was too lazy to care about the business side, so he handed it over to Chen Yushan.
His fifth day in Shanghai.
On the first Monday in March, Lu Zhou checked out of his hotel room and went outside the hotel entrance while holding his computer bag.
The rest of his luggage was already in the car, thanks to Wang Peng.
When he opened the car door, his phone in his pocket began to ring.
"Give me a second."
Lu Zhou threw the computer bag in the car and took out his phone. He answered the call and heard Chen Yushan's voice.
"I saw your friends' news feed, you plan on going back to Jinling?"
Chen Yushan obviously didn't expect him to leave so soon.
"Yeah, I'm already in the car, I'm getting on the train in two hours."
"Why are you in such a rush?" Chen Yushan said in a saddened voice. She continued, "You're always stuck indoors, I was going to take you shopping."
Lu Zhou: "There's nothing to shop for, I feel like every big city is the same. Plus I can't just waste my time in Shanghai, I have a lot to do when I get back."
Even though he was done with the ILHCRC, he still had a lot of scientific research to do.
He especially had to research Riemann's hypothesis, it was already March, only five months left until the International Congress of Mathematicians in St. Petersburg.
Even though he had seen some success from his research, he didn't know how far he was from the finish line.
This type of situation was quite unusual for him. Normally, once he found a possible proof pathway, he would enter a positive feedback loop and solve the problem soon after.
If everything went well and there was nothing else he needed to do in Jinling, he planned on going on a research retreat.
The kind of retreat that was measured in months.
"What do you mean!" Chen Yushan was annoyed at Lu Zhou's attitude, and she angrily said, "Does Jinling have a Disney World? No! Does Jinling have an Expo Exhibition Center? No! There's so much to do at The Bund."
Lu Zhou didn't know what to say.
"Disney… is for kids."
The other end of the phone went silent.
After a couple of seconds, she sighed.
"Oh my god, you haven't changed at all."
Lu Zhou didn't know what she meant.
"… What do you mean?"
"You're the kind of person who goes on a movie date and buys two different movie tickets!"
After that, she hung up the phone.
Lu Zhou: "…"
Did I say something wrong?
But she doesn't sound too angry…
Lu Zhou shook his head and put his phone back into his pocket.
Screw it, who cares.
While Lu Zhou was returning to Jinling from Shanghai, the Shanghai financial world was going through a volatile time.
News broke out that Academician Lu invested 10 million into a startup at the high-tech summit. The startup specialized in wireless vehicle charging stations.
Then it was reported that all of the major investment banks and venture capital funds were fighting at the scene, trying to invest as well.
After all, Star Sky Technology wasn't public, so investors couldn't invest in it. However, investors saw an opportunity.
Even though Star Sky Technology wasn't public, the other venture capital companies at the summit were public!
This charging station company, backed by Star Sky Technology, was bound to receive more financing eventually. And who were they going to get funded by? The investment and venture capital funds!
In their eyes, Beep Beep Charging was definitely going public eventually!
As long as Star Sky Technology wanted to take this company public, the China Securities Regulatory Commission would bend over backward for them!
The only difference was whether they were going to invest in Beep Beep Charging in the form of A-shares or H-shares!
While the discussion was brewing, Zhujiang Industrial, the parent company of Zhujiang Venture Capital, suddenly released an announcement through the CSRC, stating that it had no plans on entering the charging station industry, and it was not involved in the financing of Beep Beep Charging, nor did it conduct any form of insider trading…
As soon as this announcement came out, the investors instantly froze.
Most people didn't care about this company, but this announcement was a little suspicious.
If you're really not involved, why would you make that announcement?
No one is talking about you anyway…
You guys are guilty! Maybe I should invest in Zhujiang Industrial, since they're financing a company that is backed by Lu Zhou himself!
At nine-thirty in the morning, the stock market opened. The Zhujiang Industrial stock price rose to crazy high amounts, hitting the daily limit.
The investors who were watching the market realized what was going on. They didn't want to be left out, so they began entering crazy high bids.
And it wasn't just Zhujiang Industrial, any venture capital company that went to the summit had their stock prices rise to the moon.
In addition to these venture capital companies, many people had invested in Zhongshan New Materials, which was controlled by Star Sky Technology.
This showed that investors were illogical creatures, despite every reason for them not to be.
Regardless of whether or not there was conclusive evidence, the trades pushed the price of Zhongshan New Materials to its daily trading limit.
Liu Wanshan, who just woke up, had no idea why his market cap had increased by hundreds of millions of yuan. After asking around, he realized this was all because of Lu Zhou.
This crazy volatile investing period lasted for a full week.
People joked that Professor Lu raised his hand and was able to create billions of market cap value out of thin air.
Even though this wasn't Lu Zhou's personal doings, he still left behind a legend in the financial industry…
