China’s Most Prominent Women in Entertainment and Mobile Startups On Stage at transmitCHINA 2011
Jul 14, 2011

transmitCHINA is proud to welcome two of China’s most prominent women in entertainment and mobile startups to the stage during the transmitCHINA.TALKS: Si Shen, CEO of PapayaMobile, China’s face of future-focused entrepreneurship, and Kelly Cha, host of the ZhaZhaClub Show and one of China’s most critically acclaimed radio and television personalities.

After spending her years managing product and mobile advertising at Google, Si left Google and co-founded PapayaMobile in 2008. In a few short years her company has become the darling startup of Beijing whose explosive growth has drawn attention across the Pacific from Silicon Valley.  By offering a ‘plug and play’ platform for mobile game developers, PapayaMobile gained over 15,000,000 users on its social gaming network over the past three years.  PapayaMobile has since raised $22 million to date in venture financing as it positions itself to be the leader in social gaming platforms for the Chinese mobile gaming market.

Kelly Cha joins as one of transmitCHINA’s co-hosts, sharing the stage with Eric Garland, CEO of BigChampagne.  Born in China and raised in the U.S., Kelly is now living in Beijing as one of China’s most popular media personalities.  Known for her charisma, talent and her innate ability to bridge between East and West, Kelly caught international attention as one of The Hollywood Reporter’s “Next Gen Asia 2010” and Billboard Magazine’s “China’s Top 5”.  Kelly is a highly sought after emcee and has played host to a number of widely recognized personalities visiting China, including Bill Gates and Warren Buffett.
