I could have gotten some job that I wouldn’t have been excited about, but I thought: what if I can start from scratch on the other side of the Atlantic?

When we interview visionaries, we want to get to know them. The one thing we love is when they open up about their failures and hard times. When we feel tears coming up, we know we’re on the way to a beautiful story.

Chou went one step further. Not only did he share the most vulnerable moments of his life, but more importantly, he also taught us that no matter…

Singapore is so perfect that there is nothing left to improve. I prefer Jakarta’s chaos, where so many things are still to be built.

Wisnu is one of the humblest of our visionaries. During our conversation, he never mentioned that he just raised $5 million or that his tools were used by 850,000 workers across Indonesia. Wisnu doesn’t care about impressive numbers; he simply wants to create a positive impact around him. The calm and optimistic energy surrounding him is magical and made us forget all our everyday life concerns.

Wisnu is the CEO and co-founder of Sampingan, the workforce…


Am I an engineer? No. Am I a sales guy? I’m not really sure. Am I good at finance? Not as much as I want to. What would be my title in a company?

I wondered: Is that it? I’m 25, now I get kids, get old and die? It seemed boring.

Speaking with Paulius was an easy ride, and felt like the outcome of his story couldn’t have been any different. Don’t get us wrong, it wasn’t something all of us can achieve, but the way he presented it made it feel easy. From leaving Lithuania to settling down in Norway and launching a fast-growing start-up, you’re on for a heck of a ride!

Paulius is the co-founder and CEO of Speiz, the Airbnb of warehouses and logistic spaces. Before that, he co-founded…
