Episode Info

Episode Info:

For this episode, we have Tony Zhao, founder, and CEO of Agora.io. Agora is the only real-time engagement platform designed to cross borders and reach users on low-bandwidth networks and lower-powered devices. It currently serves over 40 billion minutes of voice and video on its network, supporting a wide range of industries including social, gaming, education, IoT, finance, healthcare, enterprise training, and much more.

As a response to the recent outbreak of the coronavirus, Agora.io teamed up with New Oriental, one of the largest providers of private educational services in the world to launch the "New Oriental Cloud Classroom," bringing more than one million students into virtual classrooms in just seven days' time.

Tony is a serial entrepreneur. He founded Agora.io in 2014, with a vision to provide high-quality voice and video as a ubiquitous platform to developers and businesses around the world. Before Agora, he was CTO and board director at http://YY.com/ (NASDAQ: YY), one of the world's first video-based social network and live streaming apps with over 300 million users. He was also a founding engineer at WebEx, which was acquired by Cisco in 2007 for $3.2 billion.
