Asia Tech Review
Welcome back,
I’m back into my usual routine after a week in Shenzhen and Hong Kong for the most recent TechCrunch China event. We had a great turnout of attendees and some top calibre speakers – thanks for coming along if you were among them.
Despite our TC event there is a fairly full week of news for you to catch up on. Enjoy – see you next week.
Thanks for subscribing,
Jon
