Building 0penSource has been a real eye opener. A little background information on me. My name is Rechung and I’m born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii. I recently graduated from college with a major in International Trade and Finance, but I put the majority of my effort while in college into my work in the Hogan Entrepreneur program.
Something about building my own business has been very appealing to me for some time now. I think I can trace it back to selling mixtapes in high school and then being given the book Rich Dad Poor Dad shortly after I graduated high school. That book caused a paradigm shift in my way of thinking about the world and about money specifically.
After graduating from college I spent the summer on an internship at a company called eARTS in Shanghai. It was good to study the arts after being so focused on business during college. When I came back from China my friend Tony and I had lunch where he laid out a plan and told me, “you’re part of my team, you don’t know it yet but you’re part of my team.” The idea is what evolved into 0penSource.
While many of my classmates, who graduated around the same time as I, have went back to school for their MBAs. I’m going to school too, but in my school I create the curriculum, and “theory” my teachers are my customers and I hope I get an A.
This is my masters in Entrepreneurship.
