In this episode of the podcast I sit down for a conversation with Mike, who hails from Canada and is a recent graduate of New York University. After graduating, Mike immediately came to Chengdu to start a business: a co-working space called Walnut. Since opening last year, Walnut has expanded to several locations around the city and grown into a full-fledged lifestyle brand, organizing community events, brewing it’s own beer, and much more.
In our conversation we talk about what it took to get Walnut off the ground, the challenges and obstacles that Mike has faced and overcome, and much more. If you are running a business in China or thinking of starting one, this episode will have a lot of useful insight for you.
Note: unlike previous episodes, this podcast has chapters which you can use to navigate to different topics in the conversation. These will appear only if you are listening to the podcast app which supports chapters. If you are using an iPhone, we suggest Overcast which is a free download.
