About The China Spec

       In the last ten years, China’s immensely competitive and incredibly dynamic tech ecosystem has given birth to some of the most valuable companies in the world.  More and more, Chinese product managers, developers, entrepreneurs and strategists are no longer copying from the West but leading and innovating in their own way.  

       At the China Spec, we hope to show you what some of those innovations look like by guiding you through the actual look and feel of China’s top apps.  We also do our best to provide the cultural and business context so you can understand the main reasons behind some of these major product features.

       We truly believe that innovative entrepreneurs and deep product thinkers come from anywhere and everywhere.  We just happen to know the most about the Chinese ecosystem.  So if you are interested in learning about China’s top tech product innovations, be sure to follow and support us by sharing our content and getting our prototypes!
