Qunar - Online China Travel Boom

We're very excited to have Fritz Demopoulos, serial China internet entrepreneur and angel investor at Queen's Road Capital, speak at Web Wednesday on 15th May, 2013.

Fritz is the founder of two successful Chinese Internet companies, (sold to for US$20M in 2000) and (sold 60% stake to Baidu for US$306M in 2011), and is now aiming to capture the next big opportunity in China's Internet evolution by deploying his own capital.

We kick off at  6:30pm with the talk at 7pm at Bisous, 9/F, LKF Tower, 33 Wyndham Street, Central, Hong Kong.

Sign up via Facebook.

Given the recent investments of Alibaba in Sina Weibo and Baidu in Qunar, this promises to be a truly inspiring talk. Mark your diaries.

Here's a recent interview on China Money Podcast, where Fritz discusses his investment strategy.
