"This boot camp in Shanghai proved to be one of the most important experiences in my business life. We learned a great deal and came out with important tools which are vital for any company seeking to do business in China. The seminar was highly professional and very well organized. The material was conveyed clearly and the presentations focused. The guest speakers covered a range of important perspectives, the forums were highly informative and the visits to the accelerators very instrumental.

I don’t think anyone can succeed in China without guidance and my recommendation of the PTL Group team is unequivocal: they are top-notch pros, very welcoming and very apt in conveying this important message".

Nicholas Rose, Director at WorldCom Finance

"The PTL Group team did a wonderful and professional job with a seminar that gave us a comprehensive view of the Chinese market and how hi-tech companies can enter this huge market step by step to do business there. The agenda in particular was very well structured with the right topics and excellent speakers".

Yaniv Ben Haim, CEO & Nadav Luninski, BD at Mer-Cello Wireless

"I've been living in China for 10 years now. The boot camp made me realize the move I was about to make is wrong. Therefore, I strongly advise anyone considering entering the Chinese market – whether it's a new app, online service or product you are launching - to hear what you have to offer".

Rami Zaken, CTO at Gamesmart

"As a company present in some 50 countries worldwide, we believe it is extremely important to understand the local culture and how business is conducted in a certain country. The boot camp helped me meet with excellent professionals and understand what steps I need to take next to move ahead and advance our business in China. During my daily routine, I would have never been able to make the time and pay the necessary attention to so many speakers and absorb such an amount of information in a short time. During this long week in Shanghai I held some 30 meetings, some of them organized by the boot camp itself. This is a highly intensive work rate. The PTL Group staff was extraordinary: warm and service-oriented, I could see they really wanted us to have the most".

Joshua Behar, President and CEO at Ericom Softwar

"I would like to thank PTL Group team for the kind hospitality, the goodwill and the efforts to host and educate. During the week that we spent together, I found a professional and enthusiastic team that know the Chinese market in & out, with "out of the box" solutions to day to day challenges".

Rami Orpaz, CEO at EZface

"This is a chance for busy CEO's to get away of the daily 'noise' and immerse in learning, while promoting business opportunities in China in the course of the boot camp"

Matan Naftali, CEO at Maradin
