In this episode I sit down with David Chen, Co-Founder and CEO of Strikingly.

Strikingly, based in Shanghai, is a company that makes it easy for anyone to design beautiful, mobile-optimized websites.  Strikingly is also a graduate of the world-renowned Y-Combinator accelerator program.

In this show we speak with David about his experiences in going through YC, how his team rebounded from initial rejection, keeping the faith after harsh criticism, being inspired by 1 (yes 1) user to carry on building the company, choosing to set-up shop in China and much, much more.

The strikingly story is truly inspirational, and David details for us the ups and downs of start-up life as only someone who has been through it can. Enjoy!
