Overview

Tech entrepreneurs are amongst the financially most successful people in China. A key part of the economic success of the tech ecosystem there can be traced directly to experienced tech executives and engineers from the US returning back to China to become entrepreneurs, or to join startups.

The tech business in ASEAN is poised to take off.

We want to make sure all Southeast Asian tech folks in the Valley and the East Coast understand the opportunities to create personal wealth, and to be part of uplifting the part of the world you come from... and to have a chance to reconnect to family back home in a more sustained way than living in the US allows.
