A bank went into operation Sunday in Beijing's Zhongguancun area, which boasts active entrepreneurial activities, to support start-ups and innovation.

The Zhongguancun Bank, which gained approval from China's banking regulator in December 2016, is co-sponsored by 11 listed companies in this area. It has a registered capital of 4 billion yuan (about 590 million U.S. dollars).

The lender mainly provides financial support to small and micro-sized scientific and technological firms. "Supporting science and technology is our most prominent feature," said Guo Hong, chairman of the bank, at its opening.

Every year, more than 20,000 tech companies are set up in Zhongguancun. More than 60 unicorn firms valued at over one billion dollars emerged in this area in the past two years.
