Juwai.com Co-CEO Simon Henry recently shared with Tech in Asia the behind the scenes story of how Juwai.com was created, which was first inspired by constantly hearing Mandarin on the streets of Hong Kong (16 October 2014). Henry, together with Co-Founder and Co-CEO Andrew Taylor, then went on to create the perfect startup in China that capitalised on the niche market overlooked by Soufun.com. Today, Juwai.com is the #1 Chinese international property portal with 2.4 million listings in 58 countries, and Chinese buyers have become the largest foreign property buyers in many parts of the world. According to Henry, “We’re a global platform in Chinese for property sellers, so there’s a lot of growth left for us as we reach into new countries.”
