Silicon Dragon San Francisco March 25, 2015 Francisco, CA

CrowdFund Beat News Wire,

Tech Bubble or Tech Momentum? That’s a good question to ask when it comes to China’s Tech — or Silicon Valley’s too! The annual Silicon Dragon event in San Francisco explores this issue as technology innovation enters a third wave — more global, more complex, longer-lasting.  Hear from founders of US tech startup with funding from China’s tech titans, hear from dealmakers looking for the next new thing, and don’t miss a special talk by the founder of red-hot Firechat and its innovative off-the-grid system for cell phones.
