Empower yourself to empower others
II am Laura Cortes! I am the founder and developer of Olingo.
I graduated in International Business from Tec de Monterrey in 2007, and in 2009 I was awarded a scholarship to study business and Mandarin Chinese at Zhejiang University in Hangzhou, China. There I achieved the APEC senior consultant certification.
I am an entrepreneur and international business specialist. When I graduated from Business School, I thought I had all the answers. I was not closed to understand how the business world works in China.
Now, after ten years of being at the heart of the electronics industry in Shenzhen, China, and after many ups and downs, I am ready to share with you my knowledge.
It is in the summer of 2020 it is when Olingo takes its first steps. An online learning platform specialized in
business with Asia, with only one goal to empower yourself to empower others.
I have designed specific online courses for different industries. I did this, so you can learn this just in a few
hours what it took me years.
Let me help you by Answering some of the most common questions
What can I sell from China?
This is probably one of the most common questions people ask me and even though I could give a full webinar about it I want to give you a quick answer. China can produce almost anything if you want to buy/ manufacture a product from China and sell it in your home country you need to start not by looking at what China is doing but what the market in your country is. Define your client, what they need and once you know you you can sell to start your sourcing of suppliers.
How to know what client?
Never buy a product that you don't have a client to sell to!
What is popular in China?
This is the second most popular question I get and just like the first one I always said China is a different world than yours or mine. Some products that are popular in China might or might not be popular in your
However, the best way to understand what is becoming popular in Asia do so by checking what product china is exporting more. The Manufacture industry is the most popular industry in China accounting for 46.8% of China’s GDP, within this industry you have: Garments, Mobile Accessories, Smartphones, Toys.
So you can go like this
A) Top Market in China
B) Top Industry
C) Top Product
D) Top Client Profile
Go from Big to Small!
How much money do I need to start a business with China?
This is probably one of the most important questions anyone can ask and you want to know how much money you need to invest and I wish there was a quick and easy answer. However, I can tell you that probably the amount of money you need is not as big as you might think. With the Internet revolution, there are many ways to start an online business with lible budget, from Shopify, amazon to your own website the most important is to understand first what steps you need to take and how to take them before you invest any amount of money.
