Tech in Shanghai
About This Show
The Tech in Shanghai podcast (@techinshanghai) is a new show which tells the story of what's happening on the ground in the Shanghai/China technology and start-up scene, through the eyes of the people making it all happen. We keep it casual, letting the various founders, CEO's and executives tell their version of what it's like to to be involved in the scene of one of the most dynamic and fast growing markets in the world. We also try to go beyond the typical, surface-level questions, and try to extract from our guests the things they do to make them successful, and what advice they might have for others who are 'on the path'. We hope you'll join us as we follow this amazing story, and speak to some fantastic and inspiring people along the way!

EP28: The future of 'good' food - Matilda Ho
Oct 17 16
Welcome back gang! In this episode of the show, I speak with Matilda Ho. Matilda is the founder and CEO of sustainable farm-to-table e-commerce grocery platform YiMiShiJi (http://www.yimishiji.com) and the Managing Director of Bits x Bites (http://www.bitsxbites.com), a brand new, Shanghai-based Accelerator program and VC that focuses exclusively on companies that are "shaping the future of ‘good’ food”. Though Matilda is now in full-on entrepreneur mode, she previously worked at world renowned consulting firms like IDEO and the Boston Consulting Group. With so many people now making the leap from corporate to startup, I asked Matilda to share her thoughts on the transition, compare her experience with her initial assumptions about doing so, and provide some advice to others considering doing the same. As Matilda and I are both extremely passionate about food that is simulanteously good for the individual, as well as the planet, we had some fun discussing her work with YiMiShiJi, and imagening the potential innovations that may emerge from the new accelerator program. Of course, I also posed some of my more unusual questions to Matilda, like “If aliens landed on earth and you were responsible for greeting them, what is the first thing you would show them?” Her answer WILL surprise you:) Applications are being accepted for Bits x Bites starting from October 20th, 2016, so if your idea or existing business could use the knowledge, network, mentorship and capital offered by the program, don’t hesitate to apply!
