Founder to Founder: Shopline Shares Startup Story with Asia Venture Club [AUDIO]


Introducing Dennis Grady, founder of Asia Venture Club – a new member to the StartupsHK community. Dennis publishes a podcast on startups and entrepreneurship and we are happy to have him as one of our new ongoing columnists. His first piece delves into his interview with Raymond Yip of Shopline.

Raymond Yip got a $50HK gift from his boss on his 10 year anniversary at Citibank. His entire team had been fired and he was unfulfilled with the work he was responsible for doing. It was time for him to jump ship. He had been working on his own side development projects which helped to create a bridge for him to transition out and a way to assess market needs and thats how Shopline was born.

Shopline is a DIY e-commerce platform built specifically for Asian markets.  They have a top tier team and have built a big presence in a short time with over 16000 customers already on the platform (thats just in HK and Taiwan).  They are a mobile ready platform that allows small and mid-sized businesses to manage their own online stores on the go.
