Chapter 1083 Not Everyone Is Qualified
“F*ck! He hung up on me again.”
Ye Nan angrily turned off his phone and threw it on the table. He leaned back on his chair.
The first time he called Lu Zhou, he didn’t get a reply, so he thought Lu Zhou was probably busy. After waiting for a while and calling again, Lu Zhou didn’t pick up either.
“He didn’t block me, did he?” Ye Nan sighed and muttered to himself, “Sigh, why is it so hard to do business these days.”
Sitting across from him was a thin man wearing glasses. He smiled and spoke.
“Calm down, bro, scientific researchers like him are idiosyncratic people. You can’t treat him as a normal person.”
“Yeah, you’re right.” Ye Nan sighed and said, “But this is so annoying! This was my idea, he’s not acknowledging me at all!”
Ye Nan was furious. He slapped his thigh and wanted to swear.
However, all he could do was complain; he didn’t have the guts to actually provoke Lu Zhou.
Even though Ye Nan was a bit reckless with his money, he was an educated man, and he knew that he couldn’t afford to offend Lu Zhou. Otherwise, his father would give him a lesson.
That was the best-case scenario.
There was a chance for his father to never even talk to him again.
The man sitting across from Ye Nan smiled and suddenly spoke.
“Actually, it’s fine if Academician Lu ignores you, think about it… The virtual reality technology is already here, there’s no reason for them to keep it behind closed doors. Star Sky Technology is a patent authorization company. They’re not in the product development business. Which means they eventually have to cooperate with someone else.”
Ye Nan frowned and said, “So what you’re saying is…”
“Even if Academician Lu ignores us, that doesn’t mean we can’t take the initiative ourselves.” The man smiled and said, “What’s the first thing you think about when you hear the words ‘virtual reality’? I promise you, most people would think about video games!
“In my opinion, virtual reality has a huge edge over traditional gaming equipment. The gaming industry will explode over the next decade!
“And we are standing at an inflection point, the entire market is about to change. This means if we enter this market right now, for example, by acquiring a video game company…”
The man stopped talking, allowing Ye Nan’s imagination to run wild.
As expected, Ye Nan’s eyes lit up as he spoke.
“Good idea! That totally makes sense! Let’s go find which company to acquire.”
The man smiled and spoke.
“Perfect, I know a few video game companies that are looking for funding, I’ll recommend some to you…”
The reason why Star Sky Technology announced the breakthrough in virtual reality was to make it easier for them to find business partners. However, that didn’t mean everyone had the opportunity to become their business partner.
While Lu Zhou was heading toward the airport, a man in a suit was sitting nervously in front of a conference table at the headquarters of Star Sky Technology in the high-tech zone.
Sitting across from him was the CEO of Star Sky Technology.
After the confrontation with Tesla and ExxonMobil, this female CEO had solidified her name in the business world.
No longer did anyone talk about her dad being a high-level government official, nor did they attribute all of her achievements to the Jinling Institute for Advanced Study. They started to acknowledge her strength.
Even though the man was a high-level employee, he still felt pressured when facing an industry titan like her.
He took a deep breath and handed out a document.
“This is our cooperation plan… I’m sure you know about the future application prospects of virtual reality networks. Our company has a large user base of younger people. We will be able to help each other in terms of marketing and technology development…”
Chen Yushan picked up the document and glanced at it. She then threw it on the table and spoke.
“I want to talk with your boss.”
The man sitting across from the table was shocked, but he quickly smiled and nodded.
“If you guys are not satisfied with our proposal, we can come up with a new cooperation plan that satisfies both of us. I sincerely hope that we can reach an agreement. When will we be able to talk—”
“How about next Friday afternoon, send someone important over,” Chen Yushan said. “I have a meeting with Penguin Group in an hour, this meeting is over.”
The man’s face suddenly changed.
“Okay then… Our boss will definitely come next time to talk about the partnership agreement.”
He picked up the document on the desk, shook Chen Yushan’s hand, and left.
The vice president of the company saw CEO Chen walk out of the conference room. He walked over and asked her, “CEO Chen, how was the negotiation?”
Chen Yushan: “They want to buy out our virtual reality technology.”
The vice president stumbled and murmured, “How dare they…”
“Yeah, they can keep dreaming.”
The vice president hesitated for a bit and spoke.
“I realized that most of the companies contacting us are Internet companies, especially whose business model is focused on video games.”
Chen Yushan: “Is that something worth noting?”
The vice president said in a serious tone, “I’m saying, shouldn’t we make video games ourselves? I think the proposal from our planning department is good. Making video games with this is straight up a cash grab.”
Chen Yushan shook her head and spoke.
“We are a technology company, not a video game company, not an Internet company. I’m not saying video games aren’t profitable, but it is completely unnecessary for us. Huawei has a good platform for video game development, do you see them focusing on video games?”
The vice president paused for a second and shook his head. “No…”
Chen Yushan nodded and spoke casually.
“Exactly, because it is unnecessary.
“They are building an ecosystem. Even if they do nothing, countless companies will join the ecosystem and help them promote the entire ecosystem. Huawei does not have to focus on the details, they can focus on the bigger picture and create more profits.
“We are also creating an ecosystem, but not on mobile devices. Rather, we are focusing on the future of the entire virtual reality network.
“Remember, we are already at the top of the industry chain. We just have to maintain our position.
“A video game lasts a decade at most.
“But a virtual reality network can last forever.”
