Show Notes

In this episode, Felix Wong joins me, and we talk about education, building communities, and passion projects. Felix is APAC Head of Growth at AngelHub, bringing investors and entrepreneurs together. He has an entrepreneurial background which is well suited for his role as well as several side-hustles or passion projects that he is working on. He is very active in the No Code community and sees these tools and platforms as excellent resources to help entrepreneurs realise their goals. In the show, Felix shares how he builds skills, both for himself and others. He also talks about how important it has been for him to allow more people to experience entrepreneurship.


Key Takeaways

  • Finding your tribe or building your tribe is very important in helping you on your learning journey
  • There are many learning resources available, and when it comes to technology, Codeacademy and YouTube are great places to start
  • Community building is important because it allows you to build your profile whilst contributing
  • Storytelling is an excellent transferable skill to work on
