About this event

Jan Smejkal (Your China Guy) is originally from the Czech Republic but currently lives in Shenzhen, China. Jan builds an amazing entrepreneur community in China & APAC on behalf of Startup Grind (#1 entrepreneur community in the world) and has interviewed people like Gary Vaynerchuk, Chris Saad from Uber and many others. Also, as he puts it, he works with some of the brightest and most passionate people to build the bridge between Asia and the rest of the world.

Previously, he helped launch a venture for Rocket Internet (in 2 markets), built an online business during his last year of BA and found a passion in connecting and educating people in the startup world.
