“China se siente como el niño excluido del curso”, así se manifestó el señor Zhang Chao, representante del CCPIT (China Council for Promotion of International Trade) para México al referirse sobre el estado actual del Acuerdo Transpacífico de Cooperación Económica, o TPP por sus siglas en ingles

Cuando uno escucha “China” y “eCommerce” en la misma oración lo primero que se viene a la mente son Alibaba y Aliexpress, los sitios web líderes de ventas de productos Chinos hacia el exterior.

BitNexo revolutionizing cross border payment for SMBs through Bitcoin technology.
Small and medium businesses account for $2 trillion in cross border commerce each year, yet pay the highest transfer fees compared to larger institutions. SMBs often lack access to advanced financial tools, and pay their expenses in their home currencies. This means that when they send transfers to pay for goods they may pay multiple currency conversions, sending and receiving fees, and intermediary bank fees.
BitNexo is a web platform and software provider that helps cross-border SMB commerce providers pay for…

Richard Robinson’s home, Baidu HQ
The next morning we bussed to the outskirts of Beijing, to Richard Robinson’s home. A legend in the China Startup Scene, Richard shared his story from running across the globe for most of his 20s, to landing in China by chance and his entry into the internet business. Perhaps the most impactful of many stories was about a startup where he kept persevering for two years after it became clear the model was doomed. He had a difficult heart…

Chat with Wu Hai, CEO of Orange Hotel
We had the distinct pleasure of a private audience with Wu Hai, who shared his experience in the hospitality industry.

One of his key points was “Your money, My business” referring to the delicate balance between investor and entrepreneur.
