Do you have to know how to code in order to start an education technology business?

Or what if you’re female and not as young as some of the tech startup founders you see around you?

Today’s episode is with an entrepreneur from Indonesia who lives in Singapore, Nino Mouton.

Nino is the founder of the education tech startup, Playbook.  

She’s the ex-editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan Indonesia and content strategist turned education tech warrior who wants to reinvent education for the young people of Indonesia. 

Nino talks openly about her startup and the mistakes she made in the early days, forcing her to pivot. She used to panic when users found bugs in her app and she said she wished she stopped hesitating a lot more and started putting her product out to the world quicker. She talks about not knowing how to code and everyone said she needed to learn so she even took coding classes! Eventually, she realized that she wanted to be a business person, not a programmer. 

Playbook is an app that offers soft skills training in micro-learning segments. Nino and her team are presently focused on the Indonesian market with micro-learning lessons served in the Indonesian language or Bahasa Indonesia.
