The digital eco-system in China: unlike anywhere else – Beijing & Shanghai

November, 2016

What an amazing four day session in Beijing and Shanghai. We realized how big and disproportionate evrything is China.

We had the great chance to meet BAT, China’s three big data leaders: Baidu, Alibaba, Tencent our equivalent for GAFA (Google, Amazon, Facebook, Apple).

This session in Beijing and Shanghai gave us the opportunity to discover two completely different cities – both fascinating in their own way – whilst interacting with speakers with different areas of expertise. We also had the chance to visit many startups very easily, which has been very much valued.

Within four days, our 20 members and the Orange team alongside of us, we managed to exchange with 3 high quality key note speakers, to meet 20 speakers for 17 different companies, not to mention the visit of the amazing Forbidden City, a great cultural moment for everybody.
