Greg Prudhommeaux came to China filled with curiosity and the desire to learn more about the country, its culture, and its people. After moving to China in 2005 and setting up a partnership with a local consultation firm, he quickly realized the importance of Guanxi which is a system of social networks and influential relationships that facilitate business and other dealings in China. Having very minimal connections, he reached out to his friends and found out that they were also experiencing the same challenges in setting up their businesses. So in 2007, in collaboration with Joe Constanty, Greg set up the workings for NextStep. It was a platform where local and foreign businessmen, investors, and entrepreneurs can introduce themselves and connect with like-minded individuals. NextStep was a revolutionary concept, one of the first of its kind in 2007. In three years, they were able to connect people and help establish a community of professionals in Shanghai through over 300 organized events.
After the success of NextStep, Greg joined ALTIOS International in 2010, a leading French firm in Outbound and Inbound projects that helped over 100 companies per year with their expansion in China. While working with different companies with different needs, Greg understood how important it is for individuals to pursue continuous learning, to help them better handle their affairs. His curiosity about business and its dealing got the best of him since he didn’t go to any business school. This inspired him to relaunch NextStep, where he could search for interesting topics catered to professionals, find experts in the specified topics, and learn together with those who share the same curiosity.
