Throughout our history we have delivered reliable practical insights and collective educational value to our users. The new name is much more descriptive of our ethos and aligns with our ambition to further pursue a wider knowledge project that is not limited only to the fields of business in Asia but to bring the entire collective experience and knowledge of Asia to the forefront. The rebrand is also a commitment to further offerings and solutions to continue our commitment to delivering value to our users.", mentioned Harshul Srivastava, co-founder and CSO.

“Empirics will not dismantle the work we have done with The Asian Entrepreneur; rather, it will build on it with a more ambitious vision to facilitate a greater open exchange of the collective knowledge, experiences and insights in the region of Asia to elevate and enrich our lives.”
