As a member of Monte Jade, I have gotten introductions from Sophia Parker and Rose Wang for business contacts. I have also gotten benefits from many more such as events with Denise Wu and others.
My network of potential teaming partners has widened as a result of my MJDC membership
I feel that Monte Jade is in a unique position to foster a great environment for our Asian/Chinese community in the greater MD-DC-VA region where members joined not because we are trying to "sell" our products or services but to be a resource to one another. This is because our members consist of very diverse professional background with complementing expertise to help solve business problems. For example, I met a transaction attorney who does M&As, IPOs and private equity funding at the Monte Jade annual gala last year. We have been meeting for lunch and gotten to know each other well.
I have benefited greatly from Monte Jade. Personally, I have
- Gained different perspectives in growing the Innovation Network
- Partnered on new proposals and successfully executed government contracts with MJ members
- Had an opportunity to share my knowledge and experiences with other entrepreneurs
- Met new friends
After attending the mobile panel, I experienced a closer tie with my fellow MJDC members. I continued to build on business relationship with Ken, started to work a project with David Nguyen and introduced a VA client to Terry who is working on a new product there.
