Add your voice to the first China tech journalism network

English-language media coverage of China and its rapidly emerging technology industry is at best superficial and at worst plain wrong. Take, for example, the country’s social credit system. The narrative in the Western world is that China is building an Orwellian dystopia based on AI and big data. The reality, however, is much more complex.

TechNode has the largest team of English-language reporters and editors on the ground in China. Allow us to bridge the disconnect between myth and reality and be your window on tech in China so you can make informed decisions. Join us and a group of like-minded people who want to do more than scratch the surface of this crucial global business story.

Our promise:

TechNode Squared is a vibrant and insightful community that facilitates the exchange of meaningful, actionable information on China tech. We pledge to spur and nurture meaningful conversations between TechNode Squared members and our editorial team as well as among TechNode members. Our entire offering is based around building an informed China tech network and empowering TechNode Squared members to invest in the production of the stories and information they find most meaningful.

We’re calling it TechNode Squared because, much like a town square, our membership program brings together audience and journalists to share information and insights on China’s booming tech sector. The fruits of these exchanges are greater than the sum of their parts, truly tapping into the potential of collaboration.

Our model, which is the first of its kind in China for tech coverage, fosters togetherness and active participation built on mutual respect, trust, and integrity.

We look forward to welcoming you as a member of TechNode Squared!

TL;DR: Community is an integral part of what we offer. Unlike other subscription products, we are committed to growing and nurturing engaged discussion around the most important China tech topics.
