Starting a business in a foreign country can be an exciting prospect, but if your knowledge of that country is limited you’re bound to have a tough time.

For Korean-born entrepreneur PJ Chang, opening an all-American restaurant in Australia seemed like the ideal opportunity.

What Chang didn’t anticipate were the cost and compliance requirements that come with such a project. Today, Chang outlines the challenges he faced and how he overcame them.

Elsewhere, Adam Franklin explains why you should never be tempted to “buy” followers, and James Omond outlines everything you need to include in a supplier contract.

StartupSmart will also unveil a new design next week, so make sure you visit the website to check it out and tell us what you think.
