Jiepang is the leading Chinese location-based service (LBS), and is often referred to as the Chinese equivalent of Foursquare. Founded in 2010, Jiepang already has over 3 million users, which again demonstrates the enormity of the Chinese digital market, and is particularly popular with China’s younger generations. Their CEO, David Liu, told Agenda about working across the Chinese social networks and incentivizing their enthusiastic user community.
