GFA022. Thanks everyone for tuning into another episode of Global From Asia! I’m getting settled back into my home in Asia – getting over jet lag from the 1 month roadshow in USA and back to my cross border routine jumping between Hong Kong and Shenzhen on a regular basis.
GFA021. Today’s episode is at the tail end of my 1 month USA road trip (sorry I missed last week, too much traveling!) and I was able to get some juicy inside information about how my friend Attila runs his international business, dealing with international banking, cash flows , import and export headaches for consumer electronics in and out of China, and some business lessons with business partners. Enjoy!
GFA019. Thank you everyone for tuning into another episode of Global From Asia – we’re at episode #19 here – I’m still on the road in USA – currently in Hartford, Connecticut – my hometown where I was born and raised. We also just passed Chinese New years – left the year of the Snake and now enter the year of the Horse! Now that we have the Western and Chinese New Years behind us, time to rock in 2014!
GFA018. Thanks for tuning into episode 18 of Global From Asia – currently in Portland, Oregon visiting some of my advisors in my startup Social Agent Limited, heading up to Seattle tomorrow on this month long road trip! Been a bit eye opening for me back in America after 2 years now, bit of a reverse culture shock.
GFA017. Recording today’s podcast as I am packing up for my USA trip. I’ll be flying from Hong Kong over to San Francisco and taking a road trip around the country with my wife and friend Attila. anyone interested to check out the funny movie trailer I recorded, can do so on Socialagent.me/roadtrip!
GFA016. One of the top questions I get asked is how can Hong Kong companies accept credit cards (Visa / Mastercard) for their online businesses? We know what a headache it is for hong kong merchant account applicants and they are left in the dark. So many are only using Paypal, due to either application processes being tedious and expensive, or just not knowing of a feasible solution. So today my friend Gary Lam helped connect me to Jo Chan, the Founder and President of AsiaPay – the leading merchant services provider for Hong Kong companies.
GFA015. Part 2 of a 2 part series, Jon gets deep into equity financing structure at the seed level, breaking down the 3 main structures when raising startup capital. He also goes over the difference raising money in Hong Kong (Asia) versus USA (Silicon Valley). Take out your notebooks, this is jammed with value and examples.
