Western and Asian markets differ vastly when it comes to embracing new concepts. This is something that Alex Shoer experienced firsthand as the Co-Founder and CEO of Seeder Clean Energy – and previously, as the designer of WeWork’s go-to-market strategy for the enterprise business in China and the Asia-Pacific.
The storytelling that goes into making the Asian market buy into disruptive products and services may present a challenge, but in this episode, Alex offers some practical solutions that can help innovators break into this market.
He also talks about how WeWork challenged traditional real estate models, and brought a shift in workplace culture all around Asia, as they redeveloped their business model to cater to a larger customer-base.
Alex Shoer is the Co-Founder and CEO of Seeder Clean Energy, a sustainability and renewable energy services company that has helped the world’s largest corporations to reduce carbon and procure renewable energy in Asia, where Alex previously lived for nine years.
