From the Diary Of

George Wu

I focus on two things, disrupting Asian stereotypes through my Podcast, "Navigating the Rise", and helping companies launch innovative products. My pedigree came from my MBA and EECS engineering graduate from top schools, such as University of Califo ...rnia, Berkeley. When I was little, being attracted to the unknown, doing things outside of societal expectations has always lured me. For example, I would explore alleyways to dreaming about meeting aliens. After graduating from UC Berkeley as an Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences major, it is no surprise to find myself developing software for spacecraft for the Hubble replacement telescope, JWST, at Northrop Grumman, bringing us one step closer to exploring the unknown. After many experiences, I have developed three core values: Curiosity, Innovation, and Empathy. Taken those three core traits on top of my language skills in Mandarin, Shanghaiese, Korean, and Japanese, I doubled down on being an innovation product manager and in disrupting Asian stereotypes. With knows how to bring out unique stories in individuals from my podcast as well as being able to lead and execute in Product Management in the B2B and B2C space, I have started to make impacts in the world: 1) Created podcast called Navigating the Rise 2) Led product/design team as part of the core founding team in the creation of a new startup within a Global Fortune Company 3) Advised VC-funded portfolio companies When I am not trying to change the world, I am under the ocean, scuba diving with diverse marine lives.
