Myanmar is only beginning to open up to foreign investment, which means those starting businesses today have a unique opportunity that is unavailable elsewhere. With this opportunity comes difficulty which is why we created this Wood Egg guide.
If you’ve been thinking about starting a business in Myanmar, the Wood Egg Myanmar 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 Myanmar), 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.)
In the 2014 Wood Egg Myanmar startup guide you will learn:
