What I’m doing now

This page is from Matthieu / Vincent might be convinced one day 😉

I live in Shanghai 🇨🇳, since September 2016 after 5 years in Hong Kong 🇭🇰.

I’ll celebrate my third year anniversary at Techstars as Regional Manager for Greater China on April Fools day.

The role gives me a chance to support tech eco-system throughout Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan leveraging Startup Weekend, Startup Week, and Startup Digest. Most of my mission is to identify new volunteers, give them our top-notch resources, and make sure they deliver exceptional value to their attendees.

I’m scratching my head to promote Gender Parity (we’re doing great for participants, not for mentors and judges), improve the quality of our themed editions, and keep an eye on our alumni’s successes.

Another chunk of work is around helping Corporations and Government agencies getting on a path towards innovation or community building. #propUP and Techstars Startup Week Taiwan were fun!

The last bit is growing Techstars’ presence in China and China’s presence at Techstars.
