1- Hello Lina, can you please tell us a bit about yourself?
I’m an MBA from CEIBS who had to leave home at an early age (sixteen) to support my family after my dad died in a naval mishap. Since then, I’ve done modelling with the Elite Group, Anchoring on CCTV, Editing of Poker and Fashion magazines and Business Development and Marketing with various organizations. I began my own offline and online gaming consultancy and later business around 6 years ago. You can read a bit more here, about an earlier job: https://www.prlog.org/10404320-the-poker-princess-journey.html

2- What are your business focus areas and why?
Right now, I am involved with a global venture capital company and this company has also invested in Ecommerce ventures in China and India, which is what I am primarily overseeing.

3- How do you describe “Atlantis Ventures” in few words?
It is a venture capital fund investing primarily in tech startups; they are also involved with online gaming and Ecommerce. I oversee the ecommerce side of things, and handle marketing and business development for all the ventures.

4- Where do you think you are personally making an impact?
I think I am pretty much well-versed with online businesses in Asia, having consulted or worked for over a decade in most places there. With the fast-changing times, challenges that Asian startups face today are considerable and it helps having first-hand knowledge of business processes and marketing strategies here. These, I can put to good use; thus helping out at practically each stage from conception to success.

5- What are some things that most people don’t know about your occupation as an author/blogger?
I’ve written for quite some time now, chiefly in Chinese earlier; later, in English. I’ve been published in Chinese a few years back, and am currently in the process of publishing my first non-fiction English book. I do write on a lot of blogs and online publications in my spare time. Earlier, as a young pro poker player and gaming business owner, most of my writing used to be on gaming and poker; though now it is chiefly on entrepreneurship, ecommerce and marketing.

6- The market is changing, where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?
Making a difference with innovative ideas has always been a passion, yes. I have a young, dedicated team, and it is quite fulfilling to successfully implement some ground-breaking ideas as we go along. We are in the process of creating some great technology advances in the next two to three years. And yes, implementation of some solid, new marketing ideas too would take us quite far in the ventures that we are pursuing over the next half decade.

7- What were some of the biggest challenges you encountered while working on “Atlantis Ventures”?
Asia is a land of innumerable cultures, languages/dialects, ethnicities – more than anywhere else in the world. Understanding your market, knowing your client/consumer and customizing solutions, products and services to cater to their exact needs and requirements has been quite a daunting challenge, indeed.

8- What can you tell to young people who are pursuing their dreams to have a business?
What I have learned is that one needs to keep a sense of proportion between declaring goals and accomplishing goals. The trick is to find that particular goal or desire that brings out the hero in you.

9- What are you most excited about at the moment?
Really excited about the new Ecommerce marketplace that we are building and launching within 6 months. Apart from that, every productive moment has a high of its own.

10- Any last word or final thoughts?
I read a wonderful line in a Richard Bach book (Illusions) once, which went something like this: “Every problem comes to you with a gift in its hands. You seek problems because you seek their gifts.”
This gift is the gift of learning. If your life has a purpose, then it is worth every second of the trip. But I’m merely telling you what you already know (laughs).
