1 min read

China Tech Investor is a weekly look at China’s tech companies through the lens of investment. Each week, hosts Elliott Zaagman and James Hull go through their watch list of publicly listed tech companies and also interview experts on issues affecting the macroeconomy and the stock prices of China’s tech companies.

Make sure you don’t miss anything. Check out our lineup of China tech podcasts.

In this episode of the China Tech Investor Podcast powered by TechNode, hosts Elliott Zaagman and James Hull discuss Xiaomi’s stock slump, problems in the smartphone market, and the wave of layoffs in China tech.

They are also joined by Masha Borak, a reporter for Abacus News and former reporter at TechNode. She recently spent a week immersed in content on 19 different Chinese short video apps, and lived to write about it! All joking aside, Masha shares her observations from her time on the apps and helps the guys understand their draw in China and abroad, as well as how they might be impacted by new regulations.
