Pretty excited to announce, even if it is with a bit short notice, next Tuesday, December 17, 2013 as part of China-Axlr8r’s “South China” tour, they are stopping over Shenzhen after a few days in Guangzhou. My startup, Social Agent, is a graduate of the program, the 3rd batch, in the fall of 2012, and will be helping out host the event and share my experiences as well.
I’m really honored that Todd Embley, the program director of China-axlr8r, reached out to me to host a “Fireside chat” on Tuesday evening where I’ll get to interview and host questions and answers with him and the founder of the program, Cyril Ebersweiler.
There are 2 parts of this visit:
1 on 1 “Open Office Hours” with Cyril & Todd
First being an opportunity to get 1 on 1 facetime with Cyril and Todd on Tuesday or Wednesday, Dec 17 – 18, at the Qidian cafe.
I’ll get more information on how to book a timeslot from Todd. Or you can come by during the specified times in the morning / afternoon at the cafe and wait for your chance to sit down with them. This is also a great chance to meet real investors, understand their mindset, get feedback, and free mentorship, so take this chance!

Shenzhen to see Cyril Ebersweiler and Todd Embley, and Mike Michelini (China-axlr8r 2012 graduate; co-founder, CEO of Social Agent Limited) will be hosting Fireside chat on Tuesday night, December 17th, to talk about China-Axlr8r and related topics such as entrephilosophy, accelerators vs. incubators, the current investment landscape etc… Cyril will also be there to discuss investments from our fund. I think we could do something really cool for the Shenzhen scene –
This is the first time China-axlr8r is in Shenzhen, have never come so far South to meet startups so this is very new. Looking forward to seeing a good turnout of Startups in Shenzhen to meet, apply, and network!
