What will pop up into your mind on hearing the word “GEEK”? Probably a bunch of The Big Bang Theory protagonists who are surprisingly talented on the one hand, but also extremely inward or even look nerdy on the other hand.

Committed to the goal of bridging Chinese and global startup ecosystem as ever, TechNode partnered up with the Sino-French digital consulting agency for fashion brands VELVET Group to launch the French version of TechNode two months earlier.
