About this product
- DescriptionIn September 2014, Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba raised $25 billion in the world s biggest-ever initial public offering. Since then, millions of investors and managers worldwide have pondered a fundamental question: What s really going on with the new wave of China s disruptors? Alibaba wasn t an outlier it s one of a rising tide of thriving Chinese companies, mostly but t exclusively in the techlogy sector. Overnight, its founder, Jack Ma, appeared on the same magazine covers as American entrepreneurial icons like Mark Zuckerberg. Ma was quickly followed by the founders of other previously little-kwn companies, such as Baidu, Tencent, and Xiaomi. Over the past two decades, an unprecedented burst of entrepreneurialism has transformed China s ecomy from a closed, impoverished, state-run system into a major power in global business. As products in China become more and more sophisticated, and as its companies embrace domestically developed techlogy, we will increasingly see Chinese goods setting global standards. Meanwhile, companies in the rest of the world wonder how they can access the fast-rising incomes of China s 1.3 billion consumers. Now Edward Tse, a leading global strategy consultant, reveals how China got to this point, and what the country s rise means for the United States and the rest of the world. Tse has spent more than twenty years working with senior Chinese executives, learning firsthand how China s most powerful companies operate. He s an expert on how private firms are thriving in what is still, officially, a communist country. His book draws on exclusive interviews and case studies to explore questions such as *What drives China s entrepreneurs? Personal fame and fortune or a quest for national pride and communal achievement? *How do these companies grow so quickly? In 2005, Levo sold just one category of products (personal computers) in one market, China. Today, t only is it the world s largest PC seller; it is also the world s third-largest smartphone seller. *How does Chinese culture shape the strategies and tactics of these business leaders? Can outsiders copy what the Chinese are doing? *Can capitalists really thrive within a communist system? How does Tencent s Pony Ma serve as a member of China s parliament while running a company that dominates online games and messaging? *What impact will China have on the rest of the world as its private companies enter new markets, acquire foreign businesses, and threaten established firms in countless industries? As Tse concludes: I believe that as a consequence of the opening driven by China s entrepreneurs, the push to invest in science, research, and development, and the new freedoms that people are enjoying across the country, China has embarked on a renaissance that could rival its greatest era in history the Tang dynasty. These entrepreneurs are the front line in China s intense hunger for success. They will have an even more remarkable impact on the global ecomy in the future, through the rest of this decade and beyond.
