Can your company thrive in Asia? Will it be successful? What about the cultural disconnect?

In this session, ‘Is the Asia Market Right for You?’, you’ll discover why… from Mr Yong Zhu, the Founder of AusTech Asia. With over 20 years’ experience across Australia, the US, China and Singapore, and working closely with CEOs of Australian tech SMEs in recent years, Yong understands that, while the Asia market offers significant opportunities for Australian technology businesses… the majority of CEOs are hesitating… …because they lack the critical market entry know-how. In this free, one-hour talk, Yong will share the what, when, why and how of entry into the Asian tech market… reducing concerns about expanding into this business world-player… and drawing up your roadmap to kick start your Asian venture. So, if you’re serious about expanding into Asia… so is AusTech Asia. Yong is offering a free consultation for every Studio member who attends this presentation. He will sit down with you, for one hour, to discuss how your technology can thrive in Asia, with the added opportunity of being one of five companies Yong will invite on an AusTech Asia roadshow to China… in October of this year.
