36Kr (36Kr.com) is the most popular blog focusing on internet startup in China. Since its start in Dec. 2010, it has been reporting over 200 well-recognized early-stage internet products in China. For the past year, it has grown from a tech blog to a multi-functional platform providing comprehensive service to startups in all of the internet related sectors.

Currently, 36Kr has been working extremely hard to create more values for their readers, entrepreneurs and investors. And now they want to connect their indigenous knowledge and experience of everything China to the Silicon Valley so that people will better understand the chinese tech environment.

In order to communicate with 36kr readers in US, co-hosted with the Great Wall Club US,  this event will focus very much on Chinese mobile gaming industry and the general startups. The panel discussion will highlight mobile gaming monetization, addressing how to make REAL money in China and US. We hope this can pave ways for opportunities on both sides.
