Owner Jie’s story

As owner of 8TC, I would like to tell you something about my history.
I grew up in China in a city called Wenzhou, a city with about 3 million people in the Zhejiang province. People from Wenzhou are in China well known for their entrepreneurial spirit who do business everywhere. In 1993, as a teenager I immigrated with my parents to the Netherlands. When I arrived at Schiphol Airport, I already had a dream, my dream was to be the business bridge between Dutch and Chinese companies.

My first Dutch experience was to work as a waitress to help my parents in the family restaurant. I enjoyed running around the restaurant with a large tray of food, smiling and talking with customers. On one day my parents told me:’ Later you can take over this restaurant, after you finished your secondary school “Mavo”. But I know that is not my dream. So I did my best at school and within one year I jumped from Mavo 1 to VWO 2 and finished my VWO within 6 years. With this experience, it shows me, nothing is impossible: if you work hard, you can achieve everything what you want!

So after finishing my Asian Business bachelor degree at HES Amsterdam, I joined Royal Haskoning DHV, (a consultancy company with more than 6000 colleagues spread over 150 countries) where I has successfully completed big Dutch-Chinese projects in the field of Waste Water and Traffic Management. After that I also worked for other Dutch companies as corporate manager China.

Furthermore as a Chinese native and a Dutch citizen, I feel compelled to bridge the difference in understanding between China and the Netherlands. Because I grew up in China, I can easily understand the situation due to my cultural and social background. On the other hand, I have lived in the Netherlands more than 20 years, I understand the Dutch thinking way and can easily help Dutch business men to understand their Chinese partners, suppliers or distributors. With this background and experiences I decided to create 8TC to fulfill my dream.
