5 Minutes at Xpand

swapit-blog-communicationVivian from X:pand did reach out to me for an interview a while back. I was so busy that I kept it in my inbox for way too long, but finally I managed to reply and it has just gone online. Vivian had some interesting questions about my journey thus far, Swapit, hiring people and generally the tech and startup scene here in Hong Kong. Of course, I was happy to provide some answers.

Swapit covered by Startupily

The folks at Startupily reached out to us to get some insight information on our journey thus far. Of course, I was happy to talk a bit about our experience and our road ahead. Here is a quick excerpt:

How is your company different from the competition?

We have built the Swapit marketplace from the ground-up for hyper-local trading. When an item is offered on our platform, we automatically attach a location to it and pro-actively reach out to all interested buyers who are nearby right now. It is something that sounds easy, yet it’s a rather unique way of bringing buyers and sellers together. No one else does it this way.
