00:00 1:16:53

"Working in a Chinese startup is another way to read the culture."

Florian (富天宇) is Head of International Expansion at Mobike and Co-Director at Startup Grind Shanghai. 

He has been in China for more than 7 years and started out doing factory inspections in Shenzhen. 

He then moved to Changchun for a year and ended up in Shanghai, where he cofounded (and exited) from a startup called WeSmart in the SAAS space that helped corporate offices save money on their energy bills.

The focus of this episode is around his experiences in China & startups over the years, with heavy focus on early stage startups since he was the first foreigner hired by Mobike, a booming bike-sharing company in Shanghai that uses QR codes to unlock & rent bikes, picking up & dropping them anywhere around the city.
