Tech In Asia
Managing partner James Tan was interviewed by Tech in Asia on execution and going public.
James was the first Singaporean founder in the C-suite to list a Chinese tech company on NASDAQ. This came after several hurdles were crossed, including new Chinese regulations on ownership that affected all foreign-listed entities (eg, Baidu).
Going public with about $1 billion in gross merchandise volume, 55tuan was the first O2O Chinese company to list, and the first tech IPO of a Chinese company on NASDAQ that year.
