Entrepreneurs in Shanghai

January 25, 2007, by TofflerN, category Entrepreneurship, Entrepreneurship & Business, Uncategorized

Saturday night, Andrew and I sat at a bar discussing how we could get our picture on the cover of Entrepreneur magazine, ie what either of us could do to become a successful entrepreneur. Not long after this conversation, a few USC alums walked in, including a couple who have started a number of their own businesses. The coincidence of this situation got me thinking about all the entrepreneurs I know in Shanghai. This led me to think that perhaps this wasn’t so much coincidence but rather a very expected situation. If it weren’t for the fact that we are in constant contact with entrepreneurs, we probably wouldn’t have been having the conversation at all, and with how many entrepreneurs we know in Shanghai, it’s not all that surprising that at least 1 would walk in.

Even though we didn’t come up with the next big thing, we do know plenty of entrepreneurs we can call on to ask for advice when we do. As such, I’ve decided to make a list of all the entrepreneurs I know in Shanghai.
