In this episode, we have invited Florian Bohnert, head of global partnerships for Mobike. As an entrepreneur, Florian developed an interest for Asian culture and the East very early on and has been leading Mobike’s global expansion journey, especially in China. He stresses the importance of being in the country where you want to expand your business and letting passion drive you. He also touches upon the positive impact mobike has on people’s health other than the obvious convenience it has brought to people’s lives.
