I was recently interviewed by Go Solo on how to Build the Perfect Pitch that Resonates. You can check out my article here or read my interview below!
What's your business, and who are your customers?
We are running a global startup accelerator to support founders in growing and scaling their businesses. Our customers are technical startup founders who are great at building their product/business but challenging at pitching or articulating their vision to investors or customers to get yes.
Tell us about yourself
I was a dreamer/entrepreneur once. I grew up in a rural part of China, where no one ever left (without car or internet). I always dream of seeing a bigger world one day. After teaching myself English using a cassette machine for four years, I have finally made my way to the US. One decade later, after starting multiple businesses, as well as having fancy corporate experience, I am living my American dream; therefore, today, I am so passionate about sporting other dreamers (founders) to help them make their dream come through via growing and scaling their businesses.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
We have helped our founders raise $10M seed funding in 2022. We have been nominated by Austin Business Journal and featured in Austin Startup Week, Tie Global, Tedx, SXSW, and other major publications.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
The hardest thing to do is to hold the business vision and manage the team to move forward toward it day in and day out. People say it is a lonely journey, and it's so true. How balance the big picture vs. daily tasks to maximize results is not an easy task. But I love it every single day.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
Know who you are and what you are creating. (your value proposition)
What is your why for starting your business?
Know who you are serving and what is the biggest pain point.
Is there anything else you'd like to share?
We are all here to share our gifts and talents with the world. If not now, when? Start today because the world is waiting for you.
