The Tech in Shanghai podcast (@techinshanghai) is a new show which tells the story of what's happening on the ground in the Shanghai/China technology and start-up scene, through the eyes of the people making it all happen. We keep it casual, letting the various founders, CEO's and MD's tell their version of what it's like to to be involved in the scene of one of the most dynamic and fast growing markets in the world. We hope you'll join us as we follow this amazing story and speak to some fantastic and inspiring people along the way!

The 'rapid-fire' episodes give you some concise info and insights, the 'further discussion' episodes let you listen in on a more casual and open dialogue with each guest.
