There Are Chinese, Then There Are Chinese

For many westerners and western companies, it’s hard to figure out why some Chinese have gone to the US for their graduate degrees, worked at name technology companies such as Intel and Microsoft, then come back to China, their homeland, start their own businesses, and fall flat on their faces. How is this possible? They [...]

Is It Possible For A Western-Managed Business To Succeed In China?

China’s increasingly important global role means that more and more businesses are coming to China. While there has been a significant presence among multinationals for nearly 30 years, now companies are coming in at earlier stages. Now some startups are even choosing to start in China instead of Silicon Valley. This trend has been encouraged [...]

Risk Is In The Eyes of the Beholder Part I

In the west, there is a whole industry called “risk consultancy”. Basically, this industry is built around informing large- and medium-sized corporations about risk. Originally, this was built around business risk and would answer questions like “How safe is it to invest $500M in an industrial diamond mine in the Congo (formerly Zaire)?” The consulting [...]

Chinese Face, Chinese Heart Part I

One of the frequent questions I run into in China is how western Internet companies coming into China should position themselves for growth in China. Should they try to be western, or should they try in the shortest possible time, try to become Chinese, hiring Chinese for their local staff and management? Under what circumstances [...]

Dell and WPP: Will DaVinci Work?

When an ailing computer company which has lost a lot of its shine teams up with one of the leading ad agency groups, WPP, to form a new marketing agency called DaVinci to spend $4.5B in marketing money, I am, naturally, more than a little skeptical. Consolidating adspend under one roof makes sense sometimes; it [...]

Biz Opportunity: Rolling Up and Franchising China’s Internet Cafes

In my previous post, I talked about the dark side of China’s Internet cafes. I was surprised at how quickly I got responses to the posting; there were more than six comments in less than two hours.

Report: Cory Doctorow of Boingboing Speaks in Beijing

Cory Doctorow, open-source advocate and publisher of the Boingboing blog, spoke in Beijing yesterday on Sept. 12. The Boingboing blog was one of the first blogs on the Internet, and now reportedly has more than 600K subscribers. The venue for the event was the Beijing Bookworm bookclub/bookstore in Sanlitun. Many members of Beijing’s English-blogging digerati [...]

Apple’s iPhone Marketing in China Leverages Global Buzz

What do you call it when people pay nearly double current sales price to buy a product which is basically crippled of its most important function, and the maker has spent zero marketing dollars to sell the product? I’d call that pretty powerful buzz marketing. According to this USA Today story, some Chinese are willing [...]

BarCamp Beijing 2007 Summary

Yesterday I participated in Barcamp Beijing 2007, which was held at the France Telecom Research and Development Building in Haidian district in Beijing. There were more than 100 participants with some 24 sessions held in three different languages. It is hard to describe the firehose of information from Barcamp, but I will try to offer [...]
