Haymarket HQ (http://www.haymarkethq.com)Square Table is a regular, informal and fun get-together at Australia’s first Asia-focused startup hub located in Chinatown. Listen to entrepreneurs open up about their setbacks, learnings and experiences starting up in Asia.

This week's speaker: Nick Jenkins from Language Confidence

Nick is a 24 year old Australian currently living in Beijing. He sold his first business at 21, was part of Muru-D's 2nd cohort and has since raised 200k of capital for his new company Language Confidence that automates tutoring and spoken assessment. Nick will be talking about raising money in Singapore, creating a global team (inc. PHDs from MIT) and working with Chinese corporates.

This week's interviewer: Terry Hilsberg from Innohub
Terry is a venture partner at Innohub.io, a Shenzhen based venture firm. He founded his first China based technology company in 1995 and has been trying to understand the place ever since.

The format: one speaker, one interviewer (or as we like to call them: grillers), a few drinks and a lively discussion where everyone can join in.

Hope to see you at Haymarket HQ on Tuesday the 10th at 6pm!
