Dear Global Business Enthusiast,
Michael Michelini (@michelini) here. You’re getting this email because you requested my periodic thoughts on international business from Hong Kong.[Edit: Actually, it’s possible that you’ve never gotten an email from me. Somebody might have just given you the link to this page, which is an online archive of an email that I sent to folks who had asked for it. If you’d like to get articles like this in your inbox, totally free, about once a week or two, give me your email address.]
StartupsHK is hosting a meetup with Silver Keskkula, the co-founder of Teleport.org – the search engine for digital nomads – to discuss the world of digital nomads and how doing a startup and being a freelancer in the tech space doesn’t mean you need to be in any one place any more. Thursday Oct 23 from 7pm to 9pm at the Garage Society. I’ll also be sharing on the panel. View full details and register here
Bitcoin is becoming more embraced in Hong Kong, I attended a meetup BitcoinHK Association Saturday night with the rise of Remittances – and we converted the restaurant to accept bitcoin going forward. You can visit the restaurant at Bombay Dreams, 4/F, 77 Wyndham Street, Central. Tel: +852 2971 0001 and pay with Bitcoins!
