China 2.0 at Stanford University, May 24-25, 2010

This two-day forum looks at the rise of China as a digital superpower.

May 2010 marks 15 years of China's first connection to the public Internet and 15 years of digital mobile communications. Home to 400 million online and 750 million mobile consumers, China is giving birth to innovative start-ups and established multi-billion dollar enterprises in social networking, games, video, music and e-commerce.

Companies thriving in China will increasingly shape the global digital economy, either by their sheer scale at home or through investments and mergers and acquisitions in the United States and other developed economies.

Join this invitation-only forum to meet with industry leaders from China and overseas to assess the likely future shape and implications of China's rise for consumers, industry players, investors, researchers and policy makers.
