  • Over the past 40 years, the fishing village of Shenzhen has been reborn as a futuristic metropolis bursting with factories. Bloomberg Businessweek's Ashlee Vance travels to the heart of China's tech revolution to witness this new reality firsthand, as part of a three-episode exploration of the city. In part one of Hello World Shenzhen, Vance gets a worker's view of life in a startup and then explores one of the city's famous electronics markets to learn how people survive (and in some cases make fortunes) in such a frenetic, competitive environment. & HostAshlee VanceDirector David NicholsonProducerDiana SuryakusumaWritersAshlee VanceAlan JeffriesDirector of Photography David NicholsonEditorAlan JeffriesCamera Jack LamCamera AssistantQi YangMotion GraphicsSylvia Yang FixerYang LiuAudio MixCadell CookColoristAllie Ames

    As a foreigner living in Shenzhen it's actually astonishing how this impressive city is not yet commonly known outside of China... There surely are downsides to living in this city, but it really feels like the future here.

    We will never remove poverty, because everyone is different, some are smarter, some can act faster. We can only improve the life of poor people, by technology.
