Entrepreneurship

A good entrepreneur carries forward good traditional business morality and continues to open up new commercial civilization. Innovation and Revolution, Diligence and Progress, Sharing and Collaboration, Integrity and Responsibility are Shen's interpretation of the term Entrepreneurship.
  • Innovation and Revolution
  • "Each person has a dragon and a tiger inside him. Let out your dragon and tiger to prey in the market so that there is more innovation and revolution, and consequently more progress, in this society and this market."
  • "Innovation and Revolution is an eternal theme for every enterprise. In a highly homogeneous world today, one can only survive by providing distinctive product, service, expertise, design and management."
  • Diligence and Progress
  • "For the next one or two decades, the best defense should be attack and change. It is imperative to fear technological progress, and embrace the tide of change. Respect and believe in the power of market and customers."
  • "There's no such a thing as genius or shortcut. Success only comes to those who are diligent, hardworking and prepared."
  • Sharing and Collaboration
  • "Instead of keeping doors closed, we have to learn to share and collaborate. We have to make the best of Platform Thinking and Shared Value to win more friends and partners, and create more values, both tangible and intangible."
  • Integrity and Responsibility
  • "Promise is more valuable than life. Friendship is more valuable than money." "In a commercial era, no integrity and failure to keep one’s promise will mean no friend and impossibility to succeed."
  • "The best of an entrepreneur is to become a philanthropist. Starting business and collecting money is a kind of satisfaction while giving out money and donating is a pleasure. By doing philanthropic and charitable things you help yourself by helping others: You do everything for yourself and not for anyone else since this gives you all the pleasure and happiness."
