  • The Program

    Based on Sinnolabs and its founders extensive experience over the last 25 years.

    Typically...

    You have clients in Europe and US. They ask you of you can offer your services in China as well. You probably have said YES OF COURSE.

     

    First step is to build a minimum service

    Then you get fully operational

    And when you this well, you are in harvest the Chinese market and grow.

    You are probably in a hurry....

    But you cannot rush the first step. You can move fast but you cannot improvise.

     

    You need to consider several China specific constraints:

    -Regulation for hosting and handling of data (ICP: what and why)

    -Technology environment: GCP: …; AWS: …);

    -Payments

    -Regulated sectors (VAS, training, …)

    The count down must consider both the creation of a minimum China infrastructure and the migration of your technical solution.

    Your customer’s HQ is happy...

    But their Chinese management starts resisting or bringing China specific requirements.

    - For examples payments in RMB, mini-app to run on WeChat instead of your standard app, ….

     

    The only way to handle this is to manage Chinese management locally in China and to pick one or a few features to incorporate into the global package.

     

    At the beginning, you are working in soft landing mode, with not personnel in China. This is one of the roles Sinnolabs is playing.

    Once you have your own representative in China, you are entering your real China business development phase

    Now you have secured your global business in China

    China references, CashFlows, Core Staff, Trusted Partners, Firsthand experience, China Infrastructure, China Features
