Mr. Steven Chang

Room 102, NYU Shanghai

As digitalization expands across the global economy and continues to redefine the internet ecosystem, longstanding barriers between industries, regions and other spheres are increasingly being broken. This process has created a new space for innovation, a “digital ecological community”, bringing together the internet and the real economy. While the potential for this community to open new opportunities for development has been widely recognized, many implications have yet to be adequately explored, including its role in the move towards a “Digital China”. Steven Chang, Corporate Vice President of Tencent, will explore this and other questions and present how Tencent is working to bring together technology and tradition to build greater connections across social, news, entertainment and e-commerce, to empower partners and lead the path of innovation for the business world.

As Corporate Vice President of Tencent, Steven Chang is in charge of online media marketing solutions and advertising business of Online Media Group (OMG), with a special eye on the alignment of Tencent Video, Mobile, Portal and Social Advertising.

Introduction and moderation of the Q&A by Yuxin Chen, Dean of Business.
