J.X. Paulin

Founder and CEO
.

J.X. Paulin, now 43, is a Togolese-French entrepreneur.

Established in China since 1994, J.X. has built multiple successful businesses there – such as DBX INTERNATIONAL – in a highly competitive business environment, not always keen to foreign entrepreneurs. Under his management, DBX grew from a 2-staff startup to a 100-staff industry leader, catering to Fortune’s 500 and local corporations in China.

More importantly, he has witnessed first-hand the rise of a superpower, China, when few believed in its potential. He is certain the next rising superpower is the African continent.

J.X. was nominated as one of the top 100 Most Influential Africans of 2014, by New African Magazine.

His impressive network and experience in China has given him unparalleled access to alternative development models, growth hacks and how to guide a country to success through non-traditional means.

Cedric Tankeu

Director of Development
.

Cedric Tankeu is a Cameroon national and expert networker.

Due to his industrialist parents, Cedric was exposed from a very young age to a wide range of industries, from oil to metallurgy. He gained a clear understanding of what drove growth in Africa, and what still lacked to transform it into a real economic superpower.

Groomed by his parents from a very young age to help Africa’s growth, Cedric developed a deep knowledge and network not only in Cameroon, but in most of West and North Africa.

A graduate from one of Europe’s top business schools, Cedric prides himself in his links to the business Diaspora as well, and firmly believes in the positive influence they can bring to Africa as a whole.

Chief of the Geeks
.

Kevin Der Arslanian is a French and American entrepreneur and ex-consultant.

Established in China since 2009, Kevin has been deeply involved in understanding its unique digital eco-system and how to grow within it. Starting off within digital agencies, Kevin eventually grew to define major digital strategies, such as LinkedIn’s market entry.

Kevin also created a successful business around a new plant-based technology.

In 2016, convinced by J.X.’s vision, Kevin decided to join MySimax and use his knowledge of China’s homegrown strategies to help accelerate the development of the world’s next superpower: Africa.
