Pascal Coppens

 

A respected expert in all things related to innovation in China, and shares valuable lessons with companies and leaders who wish to make the most of the opportunities in that area.

Author Pascal Coppens is an entrepreneur at heart with more than 20 years of experience in China and Silicon Valley. Pascal has employed, partnered and competed with hundreds of Chinese innovators. Currently he is a trusted advisor and an inspiring keynote speaker.

Pascal’s first-hand business experience, extensive network and flawless understanding of the customer mind, help his audiences to truly understand what is happening in this new frontier of innovation, how it will impact us and what we can learn from it. That’s exactly why he calls himself the ‘China Evangelist’: because he wants to show us how China will shape our Day After Tomorrow, and how we can use that to our advantage.

First and foremost, Pascal takes his audience on a journey into the immense potential of this new land of opportunity: with eye-opening stories that go far beyond the usual suspects of the BAT (Baidu, Alibaba and Tencent), into the realm of fast and furious innovators like Mobike, Face++ and a whole pack of exciting new start-ups and scale-ups. Pascal will introduce you to the realChina, its potential to the rest of the world – moving from ‘Made in China’ to ‘Created in China’ – and to your business.

He started his career at Alcatel in Shanghai, and – after an intense period in Silicon Valley at Wind River Systems (today’s IoT software division of Intel) and Polycore Software (which he co-founded) – he returned to China and later founded Letsface to build the first offline digital community platform for premium brands. To help technology companies scale their business into the Chinese market, he also co-created Sinnolabs in 2016: a Chinese growth accelerator for Innovative European SMEs.

Pascal is currently working on his book China’s New Normal (Dutch), which will offer sensational insights into business and technology in China and their potential for the rest of the world. The English version will come out later this year. Recieve a notification when it’s published here.
