Crocodile of the YangTze

Kuala Lumpur Meetup: Premiere Screening of Alibaba Documentary ‘Crocodile in the Yangtze’

TechInAsia is bringing Crocodile in the Yangtze to Kuala Lumpur! Crocodile in the Yangtze is a documentary about the early days of Taobao, the e-store created by Alibaba founder and former CEO Jack Ma.

The film’s producer, Porter Erisman, who worked at Alibaba for ten years, created the 75-minute documentary (see the trailer below) to share how Alibaba grew from a startup to the world-class corporation it is today – and to show how it beat eBay in its home market. Porter will also be there at the Kuala Lumpur Meetup to share his experience of working at Alibaba.
