Round: Innovation in Transportation; Interpreting China
Head of International Product, Mobike
Visiting China every 2-4 years, Tim saw first-hand how China transformed from the early stages of capitalism in the 90s to the burgeoning tech powerhouse it is today. While exploring the tech scene in China in 2014, he noticed that with the rise of Xiaomi and other China-innovated companies, the World was about to transition from thinking "How will China westernize?" to "How will the world become more Chinese?" Following this thesis, he most recently joined Mobike as Head of International Product, where he oversees core user experience abroad and works directly with the international business unit.
Tim leads a team comprised of product managers, product growth specialists, and engineers. His team is responsible for driving core product vision outside China and localizing for optimal experience. He works closely with the international business units to align their business needs with product capability. I.e. he balances business needs and technical capabilities to ensure strong user experience.
Tim graduated with a degree in Finance and Management from the University of Virginia's McIntire School of Commerce. Post graduation, he worked on various cross-border deals as a tech and media investment banker and then as an equity analyst at a hedge fund on Wall Street. Later, he ran supply operations at a Y-Combinator – backed startup in Silicon Valley which sold to Square, and then worked on product and operations at Uber, focusing on UberPOOL.
