China has emerged as a global powerhouse in tech. It is now home to some of the world’s most valuable tech companies and most motivated entrepreneurs. “996” is the demanding work schedule many Chinese founders have organically adopted: 9am to 9pm, 6 days a week. To us, 996 captures the intensity, drive, and speed of many Chinese internet companies.
In Season 1, the 996 podcast explores How US companies succeed in China and learn from its tech innovators? How can Chinese tech companies go global? From Silicon Valley to Beijing, we interview the movers and shakers of China’s tech industry, as well as tech leaders with US-China cross-border perspectives. Co-hosted by Hans Tung and Zara Zhang at GGV Capital.
