Jay Kim: Episode with Danny Yeung, CEO of Prenetics
To entrepreneurs in Hong Kong, Danny Yeung needs no introduction. But for those who may not be familiar with Hong Kong’s favorite serial innovator, Danny’s long list of accomplishments is irrefutably impressive.
Danny Yeung’s entrepreneurial journey began at the young age of 12 when he started selling baseball cards, learning the importance of buying low, selling high, and negotiating for the best deal in the process.
Since then, Danny’s varied ventures have seen him selling Hong Kong deserts in San Francisco, closing multi-billion-dollar furniture deals, and selling out to Groupon after only six months of founding a group-buying platform with zero e-commerce experience.
Danny Yeung ‘s most recent company, Prenetics, is on track to bring health care into the 21st century using genetic testing to deliver personalized digital healthcare solutions.
Listen in to learn:
– How a lack of experience doesn’t have to stop you from succeeding in even the most cut-throat of industries,
– What the future of personalized health care looks like, and
– Why empathizing with your customers is the fastest road to success
