EP7: Jenny Zhu of OpenLanguage
In this episode of the Tech in Shanghai podcast we speak with a local podcast celebrity, Jenny Zhu. Born in Shanghai to a hard-core Communist military family, and schooled in Singapore and Australia since 14 years of age, Jenny is a pioneer in online, podcast-based language learning.
Jenny was on the founding team of Chinese pod, a wildly popular podcast for learning mandarin. After a successful exit from that venture, she founded OpenLanguage, and language learning platform for multiple popular languages.
In speaking with Jenny we get a unique perspective on entrepreneurship from someone who was born and raised in Shanghai, has seen dramatic change in her surroundings, and who represents the many successful and ambitious women in Shanghai and beyond!
