About this event

The Founders Lunch #10

The Founders Lunch is a special concept Startup Grind Beijing offers to founders in the local Startup ecosystem.

One of the most important learnings any founder can have is learning from the expertise, success, and failures of fellow entrepreneurs.

We ensure that the group is small and only founders and Co-founders of registered startups and some of their team members are allowed to participate.

At each Founders Lunch, we invite one founder to host the session and talk about a topic that is relevant for other founders.

This Friday, April 23d Jiarui will share with fellow founders how to build a chatbot for WeChat from zero to one with Microsoft cognitive service.
