Episode 8: Moving into a new territory to start a company w / Co Founder of Blue Smart, Alejo Verlini

Season 1, Ep. 8
Ever had to move into a new territory just to start a business? Alejo and his team has. When starting Blue Smart, Alejo and his co founders were challenged with moving to China to manufacture their product. This was completely unknown to them. They didn't know the native language, they had to understand the culture fast, and they had to adapt to living conditions outside of their own comfort. Tune in to hear how Alejo and his team were able to crowdfund and build a kick ass brand in another country while attracting the eyes of many people including celebrities such as Tony Hawk, and Usain Bolt.
