With the Techcrunch conference just around the corner, we are excited to confirm that Alphabet (Google) Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt will be joining us for a fireside chat on November 2nd.

As foreign tech companies find new avenues to do do business in China’s diversifying tech ecosystem, Google is also looking to leverage its resources as a content and innovation powerhouse to interact with the Chinese tech community and consumers.
