From November 28th to December 1st, e-agents and strategic partners just embarked on the journey of “One City, One Weekend, Chengdu, Five Thousand Years”. The four-day event was jointly organized by e-agent and Matrix Adventure Travel.
During the four-day intensive itinerary, we not only received defence training from top international coaches with dozens of partners in the ecosystem, but also swept around the Sanxingdui Museum to visit and learnt about the historical relics unearthed from Sanxingdui. This included an in-depth historical discussion with the head of the archeological excavation team.
After everyone has experienced “hand-to-hand”, “friendly fighting battles” and experienced 5,000 years of profound history and culture, Mr. Zhang Ying, Founding Managing Partner of Matrix China and Mr. Max He, Founder and CEO of Edaili, interacted with all ecosystems in the form of private meetings. Partners shared their personal entrepreneurship and investment experience, and answered various questions that each partner actually faced in entrepreneurship.
This is not only a trip to discover and learn history, but also a journey of entrepreneurial growth with deep thinking and interaction. In the future, E-daili will also bring more high-quality community communication activities to strategic partners.
At noon on November 28, E-daili partners arrived in Chengdu from Shanghai, Beijing, Hangzhou, Shenzhen, Nanjing, Suzhou and other places one after another. Everyone immediately set off with enthusiasm to participate in the domestic top E-class coach Krav Maga Course.
Krav Maga originated and developed in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). It is a compulsory combat and anti-hijacking technique for special forces and law enforcement personnel. It is the most professional and comprehensive security defense system in the world today.
On the last day, after everyone visited Du Fu’s Cottage, the elite entrepreneurs in the e-agent ecosystem conducted in-depth exchanges on the development of the industry in the form of speeches and Q & A.
First of all, Mr. Zhang Ying, Founding Managing Partner of Matrix Partners, shared his experience in creating and managing early-stage investment institutions that “focus on China and take root in China”. Speaking of successful experiences, he first emphasized the need to maintain a good conscience and integrity, not blindly pursuing bigger funds, but to pursue more extreme “quality”. At the same time, Mr. Zhang said that the tide of the times is constantly moving forward. With the changes of the market and the “upgrading” of the economy, Matrix China has started to re-target the investment weight of certain industries in a targeted and strategic way. But the constant is that opportunities always belong to the forerunners and the powerful ones. He also mentioned that the period of single-point driving and rapid user acquisition has ended. Now the development of startup companies has entered the deep dive period, and the requirements for the comprehensiveness of entrepreneurs are becoming higher and higher. Matrix Partners always hopes to go hand in hand with outstanding founders who have deep thinking, fast learning ability, and extreme mobility to welcome the next decade.
Mr. Max He. founder and CEO of E-daili, talked about his thinking about entrepreneurship around the iteration of the e-agent ecosystem. He said that the e-agent’s definition of openness and inclusiveness has been continuously extended, from an open wealth management platform to strategic investment funds and growing business units, including the content business unit, the FA business unit, and the digital currency business unit. Etc., these business units can grow independently and organically, and can also be deeply linked with the e-agent’s own platform, which is quite similar to the ecological layout of Matrix Partners.
Mr. He believes that instead of blindly investing capital in covering brands, it is better to build core core back-office capabilities, that is, to establish a “small front desk, large middle desk” structure. Because all high-margin business models created by the asymmetry of information are short-lived, and before the situation of full market competition, the company should be allowed to provide value to strategic partners and investees, thereby building their own moats.
Speaking of the business model, Mr. He said that everyone can think of Edaili as a group buying platform. Although independent financial planners and “small B” wealth management institutions in the industry are gradually increasing, many participants do not have enough bargaining power to standardize Products also lack the ability to get good project quotas and good conditions, but the E-daili network gathering platform can optimize industry efficiency.
在现场，大家, 包括 BF&A 创始人 Jonathan Belz 也提出了许多个人创业过程中遇到的难题，两位创始人也根据各自的创业经历做出了最真诚的回答。
At the scene, everyone, including BF&A founder Jonathan Belz also raised many problems encountered in the process of personal entrepreneurship, and the two founders also made the most sincere answers based on their respective entrepreneurial experiences.
Finally, Mr. He said that E-daili will continue to create more high-quality travel and exchange opportunities for partners in the ecosystem in the future.
