For those who are not familiar with our TechNode Squared Membership Program, we offer a couple of members-only bi-weekly niche newsletters focusing on trending topics, industries, and companies.

Since the launch of our bi-weekly In Focus: Bytedance premium newsletter on March 12, 2019, we have published 16 issues within 7 months, covering topics such as Bytedance’s bet on AI, the difference between China’s Douyin and global TikTok, and how does Bytedance’s algorithm works, etc. We have also published a Bytedance Report in June 2019, which you can download HERE. We’ve enjoyed exploring the ins and outs of what may be China’s most secretive tech startup and it is time to pivot to a new In Focus series that takes a closer look at Meituan-Dianping, China’s lifestyle super-app. Of course, TechNode’s coverage of Bytedance will continue on our English-language news site.

Starting as a Groupon clone, Meituan Dianping has gone on to be one of the most successful companies during China’s online-to-offline evolution. Food delivery, bike rentals, ride-hailing, movie tickets and more can now be found in their ecosystem of apps and services. As the world starts learning from the Chinese tech space, Meituan Dianping is a key case study.

How did they go from clone to be cloned? What is Wang Xing’s, their founder and CEO, secret to success? What does the future hold for them as they continue to expand and compete in a cutthroat market? Join us as we explore these questions and more.
