The ‘Startup Guide’ series is an annually published country-specific guide aimed at entrepreneurs interested to learn about the respective countries. The 2014 edition is the 2nd such annual edition with 16 books on 16 countries in Asia and one book putting together all the 16 guides. The ‘Startup Guide’ series is the brainchild of entrepreneur and TED speaker Derek Sivers. The guide can bought on Amazon or as a PDF.

Derek Sivers created CD Baby in 1998, which became the largest seller of independent music online, with $100M in sales for 150,000 musicians. In 2008, Derek sold CD Baby for $22M, and moved to Singapore to start his new company. Derek is an “Entrepreneur In Residence” at INSEAD Business School. In 2011, he published a book which shot to #1 on all of its Amazon categories.

China Startup Guide claims to be the first book that incorporates insights on Chinese business and culture that are up-to-date with China’s constantly changing political, social, and economic environment. The guide hopes to educate aspiring and established entrepreneurs how to go to China and build a business in the country, without spending months of research, or years of trial-and-error.
