Meet people from other professions/sectors, share new ideas on how to run your business in a more challenging environment that is Shanghai today.

For this new entrepreneurs' event, we have invited Bill Russo (https://cn.linkedin.com/in/williamrusso), Managing Director of Gao Feng Advisory Company (http://www.gaofengadv.com/en), who will talk about Disruption in the China's Automotive Industry.

The traditional value chain of the automotive industry is being fundamentally transformed by a new wave of "digital disruptors". Unlike traditional automotive OEMs and suppliers, these digital disruptors are leveraging mobile internet technology to deliver a broader range of services to address mobility needs. Such changes are happening faster in China than in the rest of the world, and China's Internet giants (Baidu, Alibaba, Tencent) along with mobility disruptors such as LeEco and NextEV are vying to deliver an increasingly connected, electrified, smart and personalized mobility experience.

China has demonstrated strong potential to become a breeding ground for Connected Mobility innovation. Automotive OEM and supplier executives CEOs must learn to reimagine mobility in the China context in order to secure a strong position in this new competitive landscape.
