China’s cost innovation has seen many global talents moving over, bringing their experience and vision. My very own work at ChinesePod is an example of it. There is certainly a lot of talented young engineers around, but there are also significant gaps that often drive an ex-Silicon Valley professional insane.
My guest this week is Steve Mushero, a Silicon veteran who moved to Shanghai to seize the opportunity here. He is the cofounder, CEO and CTO of ChinaNetCloud, China’s first Cloud Computing company. Steve has served as CTO of Tudou, China’s largest video sharing site. He is a serial entrepreneur and investor, also an author with a published book “Offshoring the Middle Class: Managing White-Collar Job Migration to Asia”. In this podcast, Steve talks about how he builds relationship with his very young team. He also explains why there is a severe shortage of good managers in tech industry in China.
