Time:
 

Thursday, October 22, 2015 from 6:30pm to 9:00pm (at LEVELS)

Topic: 

Building a Successful Online Niche Business
Mr. Vincent Ang, Founder & Managing Director, OArtTee International Ltd.

Vincent Ang took the plunge from a comfortable corporate world into a new industry he knew very little about and had absolutely no experience in.  Vincent got the basic idea for the new business about 2-1/2 years ago.  However, being methodical and analytical by nature, the research and planning before he could make the first sales transactions as “proof of concept” took about a year. Not surprisingly to Vincent, it required more money to launch the business than what was first budgeted.

Today, OArtTee International showcases and markets original artwork printed on T-shirts and other apparel in a fast growing business.  The business empowers artists and allows consumers worldwide to buy and wear truly unique upscale casual clothing.

Among the many startup lessons Vincent has learned he will share the following with the audience:

  • The true relationships between commitment, goals and plans
  • How to overcome the steep learning curve of a new industry when you have zero experience
  • How to get things done effectively in the startup phase when you are the one “to do everything”
  • Who you should listen to for advice; and who - among well-meaning business people and experts - you should ignore
  • The best business decision so far – and the worst one
  • How to rectify bad business decisions
  • How to manage people and strategic partnerships

After Vincent’s presentation, the session will continue in an interactive Q & A format where members and guests are encouraged to discuss relevant issues with our guest speaker.

6:30 to 7:10 cocktails and networking
