Revolutionizing Asian ed-tech
Hahow, which means school in Taiwanese and Cantonese, is Taiwan’s biggest online learning platform, having powered up from four co-founders working out of Taipei’s MakerBar a few years ago to a team of 38 in newly entered offices this summer.
The runaway success is driven by Hahow’s co-founder and CEO Arnold Chiang’s sharp eye for a gap in Taiwan’s education tech market and the savvy to exploit it with a unique proposition.
Cutting a somewhat professorial figure himself, Chiang is fluid when it comes to putting down his pitch: “We’re like Udemy, a consumer-to-consumer online learning platform, plus Kickstarter-style crowdfunding, Chiang says, explaining that teachers on the platform first have to pitch who they are, as well as how and what they’re going to teach, before building a course once the requisite number of students have signed up.
