As the recipient of the prestigious ‘UPF Emprèn’ grant, at the young age of 22 Jia received seed money to found the publishing house Jia Jia Ediciones, specialized in the production of books and music for teaching Chinese to Spanish children. Jia spoke of other initiatives, such as her work at the ESADE China Europe Club building commercial ties with Chinese businesses and the creation of the first ever Chinese summer immersion camp in Spain.
Jia Wang, whose impressive accomplishments have been featured in the pages of La Vanguardia (click here to read her interview in Spanish) and the New York Times (click here to read her interview in English), emphasized the creativity required to start a business, while also pointing out the very real challenges of surviving in the publishing industry.
We would like to thank Jia for sharing her experiences and insights with CEA students and Carlos Rivadulla for making this meeting possible.
