We have created several WeChat groups and a Slack channel for followers of the 996 Podcast. This is a community brought together by its shared interested in tech in China. In these groups, we will regularly share China-related news, insights, as well as events and job opportunities (many of our portfolio companies are hiring!). You will get to talk directly with the authors of this newsletter as well as other members of the GGV team, and connect with other like-minded people who care about tech in China. You can pitch us startup ideas, ask us questions about fundraising, suggest guests to interview, or give us feedback. Hans Tung, managing partner at GGV Capital, will host regular AMA (Ask Me Anything) sessions in these groups.
