Thank you for taking a look at this page!
I'm Lionel Neo frorn Singapore. I'm here on GoGetFunding in hopes to raise money to fund my jewelry manufacturing start-up.
I have over 30 years of experience in the Jewelry Industries, from the factory floor to the retail store. Holding from a junior retail sales position and working my way up to selling wholesale in Diamonds, Gold and Pearl as a Senior Manager.
Moving to Hong Kong have led me to a more challenging and competitive environment, thus was directed to outsource in China, India and Thailand for competitive prices. With 20 years of factory-direct sourcing in China, it made me stay competitive not only in manufacturing & merchandising, but also in R&D. With an in-depth knowledge, I deal frequently deal with negotiation of buying or procurement with suppliers for OTB and Budgeting Planning.
I also manage strategic aspects of small or large engagements with Sound knowledge of costing mitigates any risk (e.g. Custom Made, OEM, Samples). I oversee and guide senior managers and managers working on customers engagements within price range, I also review high-level of deliveries across prices and objectives to ensures engagement are review and Q&A procedures take place for all engagements.
So, how has my years of experience has prep me to start my dream?
I've always wanted to start my own business and knew that jewelry business has embedded in me throughout the years, and I would like to play a big part in the industry.
Even though I've been working in the industry for so many years, I do not need any bachelor degree background needed to start something of my own. The years of practice and hustling in jewelry business suited my ambitions and gave me a solid practical skills I was missing.
Now, I was approached by few wholesalers who are willing to buy from directly from me if I can start on my own manufacturing company.
The collected funds will be used as a starting capital to kick-start the business after which profits would be rolled to maximize resources and financial capacity. Please help me make my entrepreneurship come true. Thank you for your time!
