China is one of the most popular destinations in the world for foreigners who want to start a business outside of their home countries. With a potential market of over 1 billion people it’s not difficult to wonder why.
If you’ve been thinking about starting a business in China, the Wood Egg China startup guide will be your go-to reference manual.
Each year we hire 3 researchers (at least one local and one foreigner who live in China), a native English-speaking in-country writer, and an editor, to bring you insights from multiple perspectives.
Our researchers spend over 200 hours interviewing local business people, politicians, and citizens who regular foreigners would never have access to. This is 200+ hours you will save to hit the ground running. (Bonus: When you register your eBook at WoodEgg.com you get access to all of our raw research and interviews.)
