When you ask foreigners why they come to China to start a business, many people will say that because the Chinese market is very large and they marvel at China speed. But the key to the problem is not what brought you to China, but why you have stayed in China for so long. Today we have a special podcast with 3 "Laowai" guests who have been in China for over 10 years and are respectively leading the frontiers of venture capital accelerator, corporate innovation and entrepreneurship in Shanghai. They stated that compared to other cities, Shanghai is so different and crazy. From their mouths, you will hear China's great changes in the past decade in the eyes of foreigners. Let's listen to it!
