We spoke with Gary, the founder of Kudosbay. Gary told us that 10% of their customers during the first 2 years, are able to achieve relative success with ongoing clients and business orders coming in. We were also lucky enough to speak with two entrepreneurs currently under Kudosbay’s wing, Rishi Harani and Milimo Zumbunu.

Rishi Harani is the founder and director of Univesco Limited. His company focuses on helping startups with offshore tax optimization, import/export trading businesses, and other services that help them get funded to better expand their businesses. He’s been with Kudosbay for 3 years and has always appreciated the help and support Kudosbay has provided him and how he’s treated like family.

Milimo Zumbunu is the CEO of Savvy Gems, which focuses on premium to luxury jewelry. Hailing from Zambia, he has lived in China for the last 6 years. Initially, they were looking for a platform that could promote brands in a practical way and providing guidance but after meeting with Kudosbay, they realized how they are a perfect partner given the services they are providing. They have been with Kudosbay for 1 year.

Here’s a short video of Gary outlining what Kudosbay can provide to foreign professionals as well as Rishi and Milimo sharing their experiences with Kudosbay.

Kudosbay is also supported by the Songjiang Economic & Technological Development Zone, Shanghai Technology Innovation Center, and Government of Songjiang District.
