OUR AMBITION IS TO IGNITE THE COLLECTIVE MOVEMENT OF GRASSROOTS COMMUNITIES AND SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURS TO CO-CREATE A BETTER AND MORE INCLUSIVE WORLD.
Established early 2015, Shanzhai City is a social enterprise promoting community self-agency through technology development, community building, and value co-creation that synergizes and integrates into sustainable markets. We develop solutions that are appropriate and sensitive to the local cultural, environmental, and economic conditions of developing regions to promote community self-agency, alleviate poverty, and protect the environment.
Shanzhai City is a young social development solutions startup located in Hong Kong, Shenzhen, and San Francisco. We begin our journey in China and Southeast Asia with the immediate objective of expanding to developing regions worldwide.
Our team is committed to working with open hearts, truly caring about the communities and clients we serve, because we understand that our collaborations will make long-lasting impacts that can make positive change on people’s lives. To address the diverse nature of societal change, we have become an interdisciplinary team that combines expertise in community building, data science, education, strategic planning, business design, urban data, and social impact metrics.
The founders Tat Lam and Chris Gee have been working together for the past decade, committed to researching and designing solutions for communities in developing regions of China, forging the vision and inception of Shanzhai City and its founding team. We are all proud and excited to offer you our services at Shanzhai City:
