TAIPEI, Taiwan — George Hsieh (謝國樑), chairman of Hualien Media International Co.,
Ltd. (華聯國際) and publisher of The China Post, recently became Taiwan’s first student at an entrepreneurs’ college founded by Alibaba Group’s founder Jack Ma.
Hsieh, who made a career change to head Hualien and The China Post after serving as a lawmaker for three consecutive terms, became in late March a member of the third intake of students at Hupan College (湖畔大學) in Hangzhou, China, which Ma created with seven other entrepreneurs and distinguished scholars to nurture the next generation of entrepreneurs.
Hsieh told the Central News Agency (CNA) in an interview that Hupan is a college designed not for high-ranking managers but for first-generation entrepreneurs and their successors. [FULL STORY]
