This week I speak to Vietnamese startup founder, Laura Phan, the founder & CEO of iZi Community.
iZi Community is an online gamification and AI-based education platform made for learners who need snack-sized learning.
Interestingly, Laura is a non-tech founder where she leads her team of programmers in connecting learners and content creators in Vietnam.
But this is not her first business. She started her first business at 21 with a team of 30 people because she wanted to prove a point.
In this episode, Laura talks about:
- How she defines success and its counterpart, failure
- How she started her business at 21 and what she learned from that first venture of hers
- What she learnt from her failure in the early days of her business
- How she decided to get back into the business when she saw an opportunity open up during the pandemic lockdown
- Her own feelings about education prompted her to rethink education
- How she didn’t focus on the money when she started and why this is important
- What’s important to know for non-tech women startup founders like her
- How she validated her edu-tech idea (and what we can learn from this process)
- The habits that she practices daily to ensure she is always on the path she wants for herself
