Building a startup is hard enough but going solo in China, without a Chinese co-founder, is exactly what Ronan Berder, CEO and Founder of Wiredcraft, did. This week we talk about how he 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 travelled, Ronan shares his struggles, the pivots, and staying lean as a start-up, and how he literally lived out of a dufflebag in AirBnBs for 3 years. He also takes us through how investment decisions effect your growth process and his latest success powering the recent election in Myanmar.
