Let’s start with an interesting finding: 47% of the people who come to work in China are actually coming to start their own business (as of the end of May 2012).

As the survey I conducted on linkedin about why expats arrive to China shows, the job is only an excuse to arrive on the path to independently becoming a small (or large) part of the middle kingdom economy.

Today, after actually living in China and meeting quite a few expats I KNOW this is the reason. Almost every 2nd foreigner that comes to China for a job is actually a hidden entrepreneur. This blog is about showing you how to do it….How to become an entrepreneur in China, with no high macro analysis of the market, but rather simple practical information, to help you make this step.

Come to China and create your “Thing”.
