About China Trip

If you are a hardware founder, you absolutely have to make the trip to Shenzhen, which is responsible for producing over 90% of the world's consumer electronics. The South China integrated supply chain allows for the efficient manufacture of low-cost, high quality hardware products. This curated trip will teach you the ins and outs of mass manufacturing, as well as best practices on how to engage a contract manufacturer.
