Much to grok in this one.
I love his – I think sometimes I go a few months without having to make a decision. Such huge empowerment given to his exec staff.
Everything starts somewhere. I think the old adage is the 2 people in a garage at the beginning working on a tech company.
In Asia there is a lack of garages for the most part but the rest of the issues and desires remain the same.
Some people are in a coffee shop, co-working space or their apartment or maybe their parent’s apartment.
Have computer will build startup seems to be the mantra.
Once that is settled you need some compute power, some tech/strategy help and if everything goes okay – you will need some capital.

Compute, help and capital all in on spot.

As a VC myself, this will be interesting to watch.
Grace Xia, a venture investor with Jungle Ventures and former Tencent executive, says that startups aren’t cut out. They can become innovation pipelines to these platform companies. That could even lead to an acquisition by the biggies, which certainly is not unheard of in this fast-emerging tech innovative region.
Excited to share our next project – and especially stoked to have such an amazing partner in AWS.
Be sure to sign up for your city and please encourage any early stage startups to check it out.
