Benjamin Joffe

At the JFDI–Innov8 2012 Bootcamp JDFI mentor Benjamin Joffe shared five lessons for start-ups in Asia, their website explains. First lesson, get rid of the concept Asia, it does not exist.

From the weblog:

1. There is no Asia.

“There is nothing except geography that connects these cultures. To say you are doing a startup in Asia means absolutely nothing.”

2. t’s not about geography, it’s about ecosystems.

Ben suggested that there were a few things that made up a successful ecosystem for startups: a healthy GDP/capita, population, infrastructure, access to talent, money and advice. He added, “that is why you are here at JFDI, right?”
