Venture Through the Unknown: My Journey to Entrepreneurship

Being an entrepreneur is a journey that begins way before one starts a business. On paper, I was the least likely person to become one. However, the journey began the moment I stepped on my first flight from Beijing to Baltimore to become a PhD student at JHU. I would like to share with you my experiences along the path from a graduate student dreaming of becoming a scientist to eventually founding and running a technology company. My journey to entrepreneurship was filled with constant venture through unknowns, whether in life, career, technology, or business.
