Dragon Slide: Learn about start-ups in China

“For anyone with true global business and career ambitions, China is no longer an elective course, it is core curriculum.”
As written numerous times before, not only by ScandAsia but pretty much every respectable business magazines, China is no longer just a market, it is ascending towards the market, the land of milk and honey.
