Learn By Doing. Fail Faster. Succeed Faster; with Kevin Chen, Co-Founder of Italki

Hindsight is 20/20. This week, Kevin Chen, tells us the hard lessons learned since ‘committing career suicide’; quitting his corporate life with Merrill Lynch and Lehman Brothers, to building multiple start-ups before co-founding Italki, a leading language learning social network that connects students and teachers for language exchange and paid tutoring, which recently closed a US$3million round of funding.

“Stay true to your vision –the investor doesn’t run your company, you do.” Kevin shares his learnings on recognizing bad deals, filtering out advice, and 'zooming out' to understand the different perspectives and motives of investors, entrepreneurs and advisors.

Also, if you haven’t been to a Techyizhu event yet you're missing out on the hottest gatherings in Shanghai for the start-up community, including the bi-annual Barcamp and many more. Kevin is one of the founding fathers of Techyizu and touches on why they've been so successful with their non-profit and volunteer-only strategy and how you can get involved.

Thanks to our sponsors Chinaccelerator, People-Squared, and our syndication partner Technode. A huge thanks to our Producer Vivian Law and Production Editor David Xu, and finally our listeners –Thank You!
