“Mobile payments in China are at least 3 to 5 years ahead of Europe.” This week, Tobias Pfütze, consultant at Mediaman Shanghai, partner at China Fintech, and G20 delegate for the Young Entrepreneurs Summit, makes a strong case for how China is leading the world in mobile payment solutions, with fintech innovations like WeChat Wallet and Alipay.

In this episode, we discuss the end of copycat China, examples of process innovation in China, how the Chinese are more open to digital solutions, and whether the lack of regulations has actually benefited the market. If you want to geek out on exchange traded funds, VIE (variable interest entity) structures, or simply hear about disruptions in China’s fintech space, tune into this week’s episode with super Chinaccelerator mentor Tobias Pfütze!
