Creating A Global Community

From March 18th - 24th, companies from 5 different countries toured across 4 different cities in China: Dongguan, Shenzhen, Hangzhou and Beijing to meet with potential investors and business partners in the largest fintech market in the world.


 
Loved my time with InTeahouse, the fintech startup rockstars and other amazing people on the InTeahouse China FinTech tour - a team of people who never met and left 5 days later best of friends - the InTeahouse factor.
— Nigel Verdon, CEO and Co-founder, Railsbank

"The summit itself was the most ambitious such program of InTeahouse to date. Bringing together dozens of innovators and thinkers from around the planet together with Chinese counterparts across four cities in five days."

- Aki Ranin, founder of Bambu Life, summing up his experiences in a fantastic blog post
