As entrepreneur, investor, advisor, and startup mentor -- Cyril Ebersweiler leads the charge in China-powered hardware and software startups. As venture partner of SOSventures and founder of the AXLR8R incubator network, Cyril has become the most prolific investor in the now-exploding hardware startup space. He built and runs the first mentorship-driven seed funding program in China, Chinaccelerator - home to Techcrunch Disrupt winner Orderwithme.
Cyril is founder and chief ass-kicker at the world's largest hardware incubator program - HAXLR8R in Shenzhen, China - which has rocketed 30 startup companies from idea to China-fast prototyping to Silicon Valley pitch, and just recently enrolled the latest cohort of teams. His advising extends well past China to Techstars, 500startups, OnLab, East Ventures Alpha, and the Global Accelerator Network, all to empower entrepreneurs to become truly global (and beyond).
Just some of the audiences Cyril has reached include AdTech, MIT, GMIC, CESIF, Shanghai Jiatong University, DUT, NEUSOFT, Samurai Incubate, RailsRmble, Nodeknockout, IBM, and more - while Cyril himself organizes the 10x10 Conference in Beijing and Shanghai. Cyril's specialties include international business & strategy, e-commerce, product management, capital investment, and marketing and advertising. We'll be digging into the journey from having just graduated Institut d'Administration des Entreprises to rallying the world's hardware revolutionaries, keeping balance in it all, and how the future will look.
