What fuels Silicon Valley is a never-ending desire to solve problems, make things work and get things done, no matter what the obstacles. If anything is testament to the universality of this spirit, it is the emergence of a fervent strain of entrepreneurship in China — most recently evidenced by the 46 hacker teams that poured their hearts and minds into their computers at the TechCrunch Disrupt Hackathon.

While the hackathon has passed and the winners have been announced, the aftermath of those 24 hours will be felt for much longer.
