The Philippines is developing rapidly. The citizens are talented, particularly with the English language, and many foreign entrepreneurs have been utilizing this effectively.
If you’ve been thinking about starting a business in Philippines, the Wood Egg Philippines startup guide will be your go-to reference manual.
Each year we hire 3 researchers (at least one local and one foreigner who live in Philippines), a native English-speaking in-country writer, and an editor, to bring you insights from multiple perspectives.
Our researchers spend over 200 hours interviewing local business people, politicians, and citizens who regular foreigners would never have access to. This is 200+ hours you will save to hit the ground running. (Bonus: When you register your eBook at WoodEgg.com you get access to all of our raw research and interviews.)
In the 2014 Wood Egg Philippines startup guide you will learn:
