The Hard Thing about Hard (China) Things, TR Harrington, Founder of Darwin Marketing

Failing in China’s harsh start-up climate is an all too common occurrence for those foreigners with the guts to chase middle kingdom success. If success is met however, one must then begin the arduous task of then just keeping the door open. Successfully exiting? Folklore. This week’s guest, TR Harrington shares with us the hard things he learned along the way: breaking up with business partners, optimising deal terms with stakeholders, raising money just before the financial crisis, and how he managed to complete his journey on a high by being acquired by iProspects!

Understanding the highs of serendipity in Shanghai, TR discusses how to pivot your business, the change in the marketing landscape and the importance of surrounding yourself with the right hidden or co-founders.
