In 2012, David Chen dropped out from the University of Chicago to start Strikingly along with his two co founders, Teng Bao and Dafeng Guo. They moved to Silicon Valley with $100 in their pocket and were accepted into Y Combinator after eating ramen noodle in their 1-bedroom apartment for 5 months. Strikingly is a Y Combinator-backed startup that allows anyone to create a gorgeous, mobile optimized website in minutes, without any coding or design work. It has raised $1.5MM seed funding from top Silicon Valley investors. Join our 🔥 Facebook Group to meet other listeners of the podcast: facebook.com/groups/mipvips.
