Josh Horwitz from Quartz joins us in a discussion on Apple’s recent decision to invest in China’s largest ride hailing app, Didi Chuxing and the implications for Uber in their plans to conquer China and the rest of the world. We move beyond the obvious reasons, such as managing their diplomatic relations with the Chinese government, and dive into Apple’s preparation for their entrance into China similar to other automotive makers. In this episode, Josh also takes us through the intricacies of the Chinese government’s regulations of the transportation industry. Last but not least, we also discuss the power players behind Didi and Grab and how traditional “old” money are boiling into technology startups in Asia.
