P88 celebrates the opening of its newest location
On September 17th, Platform88 celebrated the opening of its newest Hub in Salt Lake City, Utah. This U.S location will facilitate communication between P88’s China-based teams and clients in North America.
After spending a week in Salt Lake City, Jacob Rothman and Iven Chen shared their insights on the core functions of Salt Lake Hub.
“I am really excited about the opening of our first North American office. Our goal is to speed up communications and increase our ability to execute projects quickly. I met Andy through his Pupwerks project. Andy has worked in the consumer products space for over 15 years. He’s an amazing addition to the team.” — Jacob Rothman, Founder of Platform88
“Working with Andy has been great. As a Chinese factory owner, I’m constantly aware of communication gaps, and so called “lost in translation” moments. I feel very proud to join the startup community in Salt Lake and in North America.” — Iven Chen, Founder of Platform88
Why Salt Lake City?
Salt Lake City is famous for entrepreneurial spirit and culture. Entrepreneur ranked Salt Lake City as the top startup destination. Forbes named Salt Lake City as one of 5 Cities poised to become tech Meccas. With a viable startup scene and competent, entrepreneurial demographics, it was hard to find a reason not to select here as a location.
As domestic time difference within U.S is significantly smaller compared to that between U.S and China, P88 clients have options of dialing in at their convenient times to request updates or make inquiries. Additionally, Salt Lake City is one of the biggest Airline hubs in America. Flying from New York only takes 5 hours, while flying from San Francisco takes even shorter — two hours!
