Doing Business in the Far East

Written by Glede Jung on Monday, 07 September 2015.

Far East Asia is one of the most successful regional economies in the world. It encompasses China, the second largest global economy, even after the recent market turmoil. It also includes South East Asia, which according to the UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) has a combined GDP of £1.5 trillion in 2015.

The prosperous region is still as attractive as it was 30 years ago when Marjorie Leonidas left the United States for Hong-Kong, which was still under British Administration at the time. The managing director of retail social-proof technology Taggstar was part of a wave of entrepreneurs with the likes of Richard Caring who saw an opportunity for growth and development in Asia.

She travelled back to the 90s to share her experience and gives advice about doing business in the Far East.

Hack Society

Written by Julie Meyer on Wednesday, 02 September 2015.

On 1 July I asked my team if they knew what day it was, and they looked at me quizzically and said, ‘Julie, it’s July 1st’.‘No, today is the first day that you work for yourself,’ I said. ‘The first half of the year you work to pay for government. Between your income tax, social security tax, VAT, you are working 50% of your life to pay for government, and it’s the first 50%.’ Now at age 25, you let that kind of statement from a 48 year old just kind of roll off of you; I’m not sure it sinks in. Give them 10 years however, possibly five, and with a mortgage, family and kids, the smartphone ap generation will ask themselves: ‘who created this way of running society? Who created this system?’

Written by Igor Sill on Monday, 17 August 2015.

The global venture capital industry is facing a crisis. It is undergoing a major evolutionary change as Wall Street, FTSE, DAX, SZSE and other exchanges embrace fewer initial public offerings (IPOs) of venture-backed companies at considerably higher valuations. It is certainly creating a different story from its past, based on investors’ new found appetite for high priced venture backed technology companies.

What is The Future Of Book Publishing?

Written by Tilly Balfe on Monday, 17 August 2015.

An EntrepreneurCountry Global Roundtable Event held on 27th July 2015

The publishing industry is well documented for the dramatic changes it has gone through over the past decade or so. There have been disputes about whether the digitalisation of reading, such as e-books, are causing the decline of book sales, or whether multi-media devices are actually propelling book publishing into a new, digitally superior space. In a sector where 99% of debut novels sell less than three hundred copies, the question hangs: What is the future of book publishing?
