Author Series: "Tech Titans of China" by Rebecca A. Fannin

Tech Titans of China: How China's Tech Sector is Challenging the World by Working Harder, Innovating Faster and Going Global

​The notion that China could one day potentially win a global technological race would have been considered absurd not too long ago. However, the world's second-largest economy with its growing tech capabilities can no longer be underestimated by experts. The development of China's unique tech landscape forged by intense domestic competition has just begun to unfold, which is going to present an ongoing challenge for the West for many years to come, both in a strategic as well as an economic sense.

Join us on Monday, November 4th for a talk in our Author Series as we host global tech innovation expert Rebecca A. Fannin, author of the book Tech Titans of China. In her book, she profiles Chinese companies that are making waves with pioneering solutions and game-changing business models designed for brand new market conditions in China. Based on her analysis, she lists out a number of sectors that will be crucial in the country's bid for superpower status and makes predictions for the its tech dominance in just 10 years' time.

Tech Titans of China is a must-read book for those who want to understand China's global tech ambitions or want to find out who the major players are and what their competitive strategies might possibly entail.
