Show Notes
  • It takes about two years to transition from a corporate person to an entrepreneur.
  •  Too much money was put on bureaucratic things which are unnecessary for an early-stage project. 
  •  I need culture shock.
  •  I witnessed how 30 million got burned for nothing. 
  •  No payment option was a stopper. 
  •  If you go to a new city and you know nobody you just say you are an entrepreneur. 
  •  Step out of a foreigner's zone to tackle the China market. 
  •  You need to "hunt and date" for a local partner.

Yuchen Zhang has a solid background in engineering and software from three universities and vast entrepreneurial experience both in China and abroad. YC is running aihehuo.com which is a platform for wanna-be-entrepreneurs to meet and "date". To help even more future entrepreneurs, YC leads the Startup Leadership Program SLP Shanghai chapter.
