097: Florian Bohnert – Expanding China Mobike’s Crowdsharing Service
Florian Bonhert was born in France and moved to the United States when he was three years old…which on its face does not seem like a big deal.
However, if you listen to his story, that move, at such a young age set the tone for the rest of his life. He moved back to France at the age of six and then to Massachusetts at the age of ten. He could not have known then how important this ‘international experience’ would be to the rest of his life.
Florian’s global outlook, environmental awareness and pluriculturalism are core to everything he does. His ability to adapt and learn about new cultures, be open minded, learn new languages and teach others drive him to succeed across the board.
He said many interesting things during our conversation, not the least of which was (loosely translated from the Chinese), “When you give someone a rose, you still have the smell of the rose in your hand…”. As employee 37 of Mobike, Florian is a fascinating guy with a super story to tell.
