Event Details

Event Description

China’s tech sector, driven by unique market conditions, genuine consumer needs, and some of the fiercest competition in the world, has seen tremendous growth over the past few years. The sector’s mobile economy functions as the leading catalyst for innovation, its many developments such as mobile payments, O2O, bike sharing and live streaming all causing major market disruptions. On September 19, Winston Ma and Andy Tian will discuss the underlying factors propelling this mobile revolution, key examples and trends, and how they expect the market to evolve, moving beyond a copy-to-China to a copy-from-China model.


The language of the event will be English.
