My friend and mentor Dr Virginia Cha is a big proponent of entrepreneurship in Asia. She has successfully created and run ventures in the region and beyond. It was from Virginia that I got my first insight into Shanzai Innovation. Her latest work is around how many of the concepts used in Silicon Valley today actually have their roots in Asian entrepreneurship circles. My favourite section is around how Shanzai is progressing from mere hardware imitation through to innovative platform creation. You can see more of her work here.
