Masterclass description: As one of the fastest growing countries in the world, China has been attracting both admiration and doubt from the West. In the midst of international powerplay, Shenzhen has risen as the epicenter of industrial-size production of pretty much everything that has to do with connected hardware. From smart watches to smart phones, the even faster growing city soon became the perfect soil for Chinese innovation to find its true calling, adding on to the network of forward-thinking megalopoles like Shanghai and Beijing.

Three speakers, coming straight from Shanghai and Shenzhen, will discuss the various strategies adopted by Chinese makers to go from ideation to market in a faster-than-ever motion. Under the moderation of Todd Embley, this masterclass will aim at better understanding the Chinese model and identifying how it will impact global markets.
