TechCrunch Shanghai is now only a few weeks away! From June 8 to 9, the event will feature talks, roundtable discussions and startup pitches. Guests to take stage this time range from well-known IOT technologists, high-profile venture capitalists to rising entrepreneurs. As part of our TechCrunch event, we will hear the story of four prominent Chinese entrepreneurs whose companies have been leading the innovations in their respective verticals.

Zhang Xuhao, Founder of Ele.me

Ele.me (“are you hungry” in Chinese) offers online food ordering services. It also acts as a communication platform between users and restaurants. Started in 2008 as a service targeting university students and the low-end catering market, the site claimed to have recorded more than 110 million orders in the past year. After receiving several hefty financing rounds from Chinese Internet giants like Tencent and Dianping, Ele.me is planning to expand into high-tier markets and to construct an in-house logistics system.
