“on the road again”, then again, was I never “not on the road”? This is why I don’t see myself ever renting a really nice apartment….seriously, I am always on the move! But I love it – love the hustle – no matter how exhausting it may be – sincerely enjoy meeting people Wednesday April 17 – Next Step Shanghai – 7:30pm to 9pm, Location: Glo London (1 Wulumuqi Lu, 3rd floor) NextStep is helping launch a Shanghai-based Kickstarter project produced by Unbelievable Testing Laboratory. UT.LAB founders, Token Hu and Maggie Ma, and partners, Shaun Nath and Joe Constanty will be joining us to discuss their project launch for their limited edition LIGHT WING Pencil shoes.

I’ll speak about my 8 month progress in Social Agent Limited startup. I love sharing stories 😉
cost is 150rmb lunch – and no, I don’t make any profit from it!
Azul Restaurant, Ferguson Lane, 8/F, 378 Wukang Lu (near Hunan Lu), Shanghai Friday April 19 – 21 – Facilitating Startup Weekend Shanghai, China!
shanghai. startupweekend .org, as I blogged earlier, I’m so excited to see Startup Weekend explode all across Hong Kong and south / mid China, there will be a potential organizer from Xiamen also visiting to witness how a Startup Weekend happens. Truly amazing to be part of this phenomena – and can’t wait to work with startups in Shanghai. Week of 22nd to 26 – Social Agent business meetings! Been jamming my “open office hours” now via Kevin Dewalt’s startup solution – sohelpful.me/michelini to maximize my limited time in Shanghai. Seriously have to consider coming to Shanghai more – so many foreign enterprises here selling into the Chinese market its ridiculous not to be here! Tuesday April 23 – Dan “the man” arrives from Shenzhen – his second city in China he’ll be visiting besides his Shenzhen homebase! I’m excited to expose him to some awesome mentors and customers in our Social Agent startup. He’ll be visiting Shanghai with me until Sunday. Hope he can still get coding done on the project, but feel its worthwhile to expose him to the business expansion side as well. Saturday April 27th – Focus Group and/or training seminar. I really gotta hammer out the details, but will be working on a 8 – 10 person focus group like we did in Hong Kong last month – share some insights on getting results from Chinese social media, and then more on the interact using Social Agent system and gathering feedback and reactions. Sunday April 28th – Hiking and team building. Irving Steel, an advisor with Social Agent, will be hiking – and I hope to take along a bit and get some much needed exercise!
