Facebook recommends Insta360’s cameras as a way to make 360 live-streaming “easy, reliable and fun”. 

Jingkang Liu (JK), the CEO and founder of leading 360-degree camera maker Insta360, will talk about the tough startup beginnings, how he recruited the best talent (some of his early colleagues were also his university classmates) and when he decided to go after the global market.
