Our favorite mobile startups from the Mobile World Congress Shanghai 2018

Last week we visited Mobile World Congress (MWC) Shanghai 2018. Wow!

As you know, a mobile phone plays an invaluable part of daily life and connects two-thirds or the worlds population. As of 2017, there are around 735 million mobile internet users in China with data usage rising at a 162% y/y pace (Mary Meeker KPBC).  Innovations such as IOT, 5G, AR/VR and AI are bringing more entrepreneurs into the mobile ecosystem and building great companies that were on display at MWC. Here are a few of our favorites:
