Building a startup is hard enough, but going solo in China without a Chinese co-founder? That’s the story of this week’s guest speaker, Ronan Berder, the CEO and founder of Wiredcraft. In this episode, we talk about how Ronan bootstrapped his company from the ashes of a failed startup into a global DevOps company with huge international clients such as the UN, CNN, Starbucks and the Worldbank.

Embracing the path less traveled, Ronan shares his struggles, the pivots, and staying lean as a start-up, and how he lived out of a dufflebag in different Airbnbs for 3 years. He also takes us through the impact that investment decisions have on startups’ growth processes, as well as his latest success powering the recent election in Myanmar.
