As the consumer market expands, China is a country capable of both under-serving and over-saturating its tech hungry markets. While eastern city hubs see a slowdown in smartphones and laptops, third tier cities are fast consumers of new services and products. At the same time, China’s regional neighbors Japan and South Korea boast high-speed connections, but smaller populations.

So how do we go about approaching such a complex market? Despite having common ground as global tech hubs, the Chinese ecosystem and Silicon Valley are like night and day.  How should investors approach China? How can East Asia learn from Silicon Valley and what does the future of the Asian market look like?

We put these questions to our panelists at our Technode Demoday on September 25th in San Francisco Gary Gong, Executive Vice President of the Institute for Information Industry, Chen Zhao, head of Plug & Play China, and James Jung, CEO of Besuccess shared their ideas on the current status of Asian startups.
