Going global is a survival strategy for many tech companies, and China is too big of the global market to ignore. If you are a tech company leader and are wondering if you should expand to the China market, what should you do first? And who should you talk with? Tim Lindeman, VP Operations for a Boston-based data analytics software company, Dimensional Insight, shares with us about his story of starting business for the company in China in 2006. There were mistakes made, lessons learned, and experience gained. With his 15 years’ experience of doing business in the China market, Tim and his partner wanted to help other leaders like them succeed in China, so they are launching a platform ChinaBiz Connect (www.chinabizconnect.com). Let’s hear from Tim about ChinaBiz Connect, why they started it, who can benefit from it and what you can get from this platform.
About the Guest
Tim Lindeman's China journey began in 2000, when he arrived in China unable to speak a single sentence of Mandarin.

Later Tim joined Dimensional Insight, a data analytics software company, set up and run their China subsidiary. Through years of trial and error Tim and his team built up a sales channel and customer base, and the company is now a well-known brand in China’s healthcare IT industry.
