    EP35: Žiga Drev of OriginTrail

    EP35: Žiga Drev of OriginTrail

    In this episode I sit down with Žiga Drev, Co-Founder of origintrail.io, the "First purpose-built protocol for supply chains based on Blockchain.” 
    We discuss the ongoing (at the time) ICO, how their protocol will be used, and the work he and his team have done in the preceding months to prepare for this stage in their development, including graduating from Batch 2 of the bitsxbites.com accelerator program in Shanghai, and being awarded the ‘Walmart Food Safety Innovation Spark Award’ in Beijing
    We also delve into how OriginTrail has transitioned from a conventional to now a blockchain-focused company, and Žiga explains how his company is using Blockchain to bring more transparency, accountability and trust to the food supply chain.
    Finally, we discuss what it’s like to be a young entrepreneur in a booming industry, that seems set to radically change how we live, interact and conduct business. 
    Would love to hear any feedback you may have in the comments below. Thanks! 
    *NOTE* - I refer to 'OriginTrail' as 'OpenTrail' throughout this interview. This was a massive brainfart on my part, which Žiga seemed too polite to correct me on, and which persisted despite his using the correct term throughout. My apologies to Žiga and the OriginTrail team, as well as to the listeners for any confusion. I'll be sure to correct this in future interviews!

    EP34: Alex Duncan of KAWO 2!

    EP34: Alex Duncan of KAWO 2!

    Yo! 
     
    In this episode I welcome back the VERY FIRST guest of the Tech in Shanghai podcast, and CEO of KAWO, Mr. Alex Duncan.
     
    A LOT has happened in China over the past three years since I first spoke with Alex, especially in the technology industry. 
     
    In this show, Alex and I go deep on the positive and negative consequences of China’s rise as a tech superpower, and what it means for the rest of the world and the environment of the planet.
     
    We also discuss how things have changed on the personal side. Change in China is rapid, and often extreme, and so living and working here requires constant adjustments and adaptations, which can sometimes be challenging. We both share our opinions on how our lives and motivations for remaining in China have changed during the last 3 years, what keeps us here, and how we’ve adapted to continue to get the most out of the amazing story that's unfolding here.
     
    Enjoy!

    EP33: 'Bitcoin State of Union' w/ Bobby Lee (Oct 2017)

    EP33: 'Bitcoin State of Union' w/ Bobby Lee (Oct 2017)

    It’s been a wild year in Bitcoin, and we’re not done yet!
    This year has seen several all time highs, the ICO boom, the culmination of the Bitcoin scaling debate, the initiation of hardforks, regulatory changes in China, and lots of development in the ecosystem. 
    As Bitcoin’s market cap continues to climb, it is attracting evermore attention, market entrants, supporters, detractors and regulatory scrutiny. 
    October has been a (relatively) quiet month for Bitcoin, subsequent to the shut down of exchanges in China, and prior to the culmination of the SegWit2X drama in mid-late November. 
    So, I thought it would be a great time to re-connect with my pal Bobby Lee, for our third interview in 3 years, in what we’ve come to refer to as the ‘Bitcoin State of the Union’ chat.
    Bobby, as usual, was incredibly generous with his time, which allowed us to go for almost 2 hours, as we attempted to touch on the main events from the year, and speculate on what lies ahead in the near future.
    If you’re brand new to Bitcoin, I highly suggest you listen to my two other discussions with Bobby first, as in this one we skip past the ‘basics’ and get right into the relevant events of the past 9 months or so.
    Enjoy!

    EP32: Rina Joosten-Rabou of Seedlink

    EP32: Rina Joosten-Rabou of Seedlink

    Rina is the co-founder of Seedlink, a company based in Shanghai that uses AI and machine-learning to assist companies in more effectively managing their HR decisions. 
    By analyzing the speech patters of candidates, and comparing that to a data set of top performs in different positions throught the company they are working with, Seedlink is able to drastically increase the likelihood that companies will make hires that are better equiped to do the job well, and who are also likely to be a great match with the company culture.
    Seedlink's technology and approach is also helping to even the playing field for job seekers, helping to remove commone biases based on age, gender, race, education and work experience, and increasing the chances that they will fill a position that they are good at, but also enjoy!
    Needless to say, in a world where even the largest companies are facing massive disruption, having a tool to help make better and faster hiring (and firing) decisions can be a huge asset.
    In addition to her company, Rita and I dive in to all the other challenges and unique experiences that result from being a foreign entrepreneur in the Tech industry in China.
    Enjoy!

    EP31: Stone Shi of Bon App!

    EP31: Stone Shi of Bon App!

    Stone Shi is the founder of the extremely popular social food-discovery app, Bon App!
     
    In this interview we discuss the reasons why Stone decided to walk away from a lucrative corporate career, to jump into the highly uncertain world of tech startups. As well as what the journey has been like as a result, both pros and cons.
     
    We also discuss the many challenges that consumer app startups face in terms of building a broad user base, a passionate community, and of course, a sustainable monetization model.
     
    The road has not been easy for Stone and the team at Bon App!, and as he mentions in the interview, to have any chance of success in this realm, you really need to know and believe in what you are trying to build and create. 
     
    What is the point of putting your effort into this? Why is it (the most) meaningful thing to you? If you don’t have those, he explains, your chances of staying the course and persevering when the journey takes (prolonged) unexpected and painful turns, are slim.
     
    To that end, Stone shares how he found his ‘why’ and how doing so has given him the stamina to continue trying to actualize his vision for Bon App!
     
    Of course, he also gives us a sneak peak into some of the exciting things Bon App! has planned for the future!
