Itâs the story about how a Chinese fishing village became a global economic powerhouse of innovation and technology. Just four decades ago Shenzhen was a backwater area, populated by fishermen and rice farmers. Today, itâs home to up to 20 million people and some of the worldâs leading technology companies and most innovative tech startups.
No other city better symbolizes the rise of modern China. And no other city challenges Silicon Valley more aggressively as the global hub for innovation and technology startups. In many ways, the Chinese city has already outsmarted the Valley.
âShenzhen has an energy of growth â the same energy I felt when I first came to Silicon Valley ten years ago. And itâs not just in technology. Itâs this idea that whoever you are, whatever youâre into, you can come to China, and especially Shenzhen, and do it!â American entrepreneur Scotty Allen says in the book.
Shenzhen Superstars is written for anyone who wants to be part of this raging growth story â no matter if youâre a tech buff, investor or just someone curious about knowing whatâs driving the future.
As a journalist for CNN, Forbes and other international media, Johan Nylander has witnessed the astonishing transformation of the south Chinese city. Its speed, energy and determination are just mind-blowing. His aim is to take you inside, to the very heart of what is shaping this vibrant city.
