A couple of weeks ago, I had lunch with two friends from the Australian Financial Market.
We were at the Chinese market on a Sunday morning, and I wanted to learn more about what was happening there.
They were eager to share what they were doing, so I showed them my calendar.
“I don’t know when the Chinese markets open,” I told them.
“Well, they’ll probably open sometime in the summer,” said one.
At the same time, I wanted them to understand what the Chinese were doing to diversify their product offerings, and they weren’t quite sure what to make of this.
The markets were the most exciting thing for me.
They were going to be huge.
I was going to start looking at Chinese companies.
There were a lot of Chinese companies that had gone public and were now in public markets.
One of them was called Duoing and they were a digital advertising platform that launched a new Chinese stock exchange in April.
Another was called Taobao, and it had a new website with a Chinese name.
These were companies that were growing quickly, and were very popular.
Diujing was a company that had been founded by Chinese men who were looking to get a foothold in Australia.
Taobao was owned by a group of Chinese entrepreneurs that had acquired Taoban, which had been the largest marketplace for Chinese products in the world.
Their strategy was to go public with a platform that was more Chinese and more local to Australia, and to attract the Chinese investors who were willing to invest in Australian businesses.
We also went to a couple of Chinese tech companies, but they didn’t seem interested in talking to us.
It was pretty clear from talking to them that they were focused on the big market, and that they weren´t interested in diversifying their offerings.
So I thought to myself, well, why not just start a Chinese marketplace?
The next day I found out what it was.
A few hours later, I got an email from a Chinese investor.
He was excited to get some Chinese equity for his company, but I was nervous.
I had a lot on my mind.
His email read: Hello Mr. Li, Thank you for your interest in joining our China-focused startup team.
We would like to start an early stage company called Huong.
We are looking for experienced and experienced Chinese investors.
We have a very clear vision of our business.
We want to build a successful company, grow, and be successful.
We can offer you our best advice to help you with your venture.
My excitement rose immediately.
When I heard the word Huong, I knew I was on to something big.
Huong was going international.
As it turns out, Huong had the potential to be the biggest online marketplace for the Chinese people.
If you search Huou.com, you will see a picture of a woman sitting in front of a huge banner that reads: Huuu.com is China´s biggest online Chinese marketplace.
(Note: Huou is also the Chinese word for “good luck”.)
What did I know about China?
I didn’t know much about Chinese markets, but it seemed to be something that everyone knew about.
In a recent study by Bloomberg New Energy Finance, the Chinese internet market was valued at $10.5 billion in 2018, and was expected to grow at about 8.5% in 2019.
This is why I was excited about starting an early-stage Chinese company.
However, the reason I was interested in starting an international startup was because I thought that the Chinese investor would be interested in investing in an Australian company.
He was very well connected.
He spoke Mandarin, was in good company, and would be willing to speak to me about the company.
I thought he might have a point.
After all, the biggest Chinese internet company was Huangfu.com.
While I didn’t really know the company well, I did know that the company was owned and operated by a Chinese family, who was a well-known investor.
All of these factors made me feel very comfortable in investing with him.
To put it simply, he was a Chinese investment banker.
What is a Chinese Investment Bank?
A Chinese investment bank is a company in China that owns, manages, and operates a Chinese company in the country.
You may have heard of a Chinese bank, such as MtGox.
Chinese banks also have their own subsidiaries and subsidiary companies that they can operate in the same way as Chinese companies do.
China has around 200 investment banks that have a presence in the Chinese financial sector, making up roughly 30% of all Chinese banks.
For the sake of this post, I am only talking about Chinese banks in this
