Till has long been dedicated to building bridges between China and “the West”. At Techcode, Till is supporting European tech startups to identify their touchpoints with China and assists them to master the challenges that "going East" involves. At the same time, Till advises Western corporates to localize their startup and venture activities in China in order to access the tech ecosystems of Beijing, Shanghai or Shenzhen. East Asia has been playing a major part in Till’s life ever since he graduated from High School in Bangkok 15 years ago. He holds an MA in China Studies, speaks fluently Chinese and spent more than 4 years in Beijing, Shanghai and Dalian studying, researching and working as a consultant for German SMEs in Shanghai.
