How Musical.ly Stormed the Tween World from China

Headquartered in Shanghai, Musical.ly is a video social network that has exploded globally to nearly 100 million “musers”. Achieving the kind of viral cross-border success that many entrepreneurs aspire to, this panel will tease out the most important lessons for entrepreneurs looking to successfully enter global markets. With over 20 million active users in the United States, the app is now larger than Twitter-owned competitor, Vine. Moderated by Bloomberg journalist Selina Wang, who specializes in coverage of cross-border Asian companies, DCM Ventures’ David Chao and co-CEO Alex Zhu will talk about how to build and scale an app that’s successful in a global marketplace.
