EntrepreneurShit Series | Expanding into China as a Singaporean entrepreneur

Written by Joanna Ng Published on 

Faith shares her entrepreneurial experience in attempting to expand into China.

Everyone talks about China as if it is a sure win – Bigger markets mean bigger money.

But is it actually the case? If you have yet to set foot on the land, you probably did not realize that they quite literally have a different operating system.

In this week’s episode of EntrepreneurShit, we speak to Faith Teo, co-founder of 8XP and a leader in smart retail solutions, which partner with many great brands, such as Shanghai Fashion Week.

She shares with us:

– The time she was asked to provide ‘special photos’

– The struggles of a Singaporean mindset in China

– The importance of fast decisions
