Veteran Straits Times reporter Grace Chng interviews James Tan. “To take on the giant Chinese market, it might be best for a Singaporean entrepreneur to start as a student. That is the advice of Mr James Tan, 37, co-founder of China’s second largest group-buying site, 55tuan. Today, 55tuan.com has eight-figure US revenue per month, with double-digit growth month-on-month… 55tuan.com sells a variety of things, such as beauty and travel products and clothes. It employs 3,900 workers and has expanded to 150 cities.”
