Wei Guo (Chinese name), a Dutch designer of LED panels, came to Shenzhen, one of the four first-tier cities of China, to supervise production seven years ago. Finding the local conditions and customs fascinating, he said, “After a month in Shenzhen, I knew I would stay here.”

A few years ago, Wei Guo set up a team of his own called Trouble Maker, with employees from several countries including the US, Norway and Finland, and started to design and make intelligent hardware prototypes for foreign-funded companies.

In July 2016, Trouble Maker entered the Hua Qiang Bei International Maker Center, a comprehensive platform providing a one-stop service for innovators and entrepreneurs in Shenzhen’s Huaqiangbei, a sub-district which is home to China's largest electronics market.

According to Wei Guo, Shenzhen is an excellent location for his company, as it only takes a few months to create their basic product designs and put them into mass production, whereas the designs could have taken up to two years to finish in his home country.
