"In the next 10 years, Beijing will be the sole competitor to Silicon Valley. Large startups in China develop over 3 to 5 years, in the US it takes 5 to 8 years. In Shenzhen, the time it takes to launch a new project from idea to production is only 3 to 6 months. Nowhere in the world can you grow a business so rapidly"
