I speak to audiences internationally about building global communities in China, networking, and my entrepreneurial experiences in Asia. I love speaking and providing value to all sorts of different audiences but especially aspiring entrepreneurs and students. Thank you for considering me as a speaker.

Jan (y-ah-n) runs the world's largest entrepreneur community (Startup Grind) in China and APAC. He works with some of the brightest and most passionate tech ecosystem builders to educate, inspire and connect founders from all around the world. Over the last 6 months, under Jan's leadership, Startup Grind community in China has more than doubled to 11+ active cities hosting regular events and impacting the entrepreneurial landscape in China.

Previously, Jan helped launch a venture for Rocket Internet (in 2 markets) and built an online business during my last year of BA (which he later also successfully exited).

He's currently based in Shenzhen and works effortlessly to help build a bridge between China and the rest of the world.

Jan also documents his entrepreneurial journey on his vlog.
