About the episode
For our tenth episode this season, we go back to the first we recorded for our podcast with our founding managing partner Yinglan Tan. His pursuit of the unstoppable founder has led him to where he is today: at the helm of an early-stage technology venture fund focusing on Southeast Asia, with a portfolio including technology market leaders in the region like Carro, Payfazz, Janio, and LOGIVAN. Having supported many successful companies throughout his career, he shares the six characteristics of successful early-stage tech companies and explains the mechanics of building a sustainable technology platform business. This interview was recorded January this year.
