Anthony Tjan is the CEO of Cue Ball Group and also a New York Times best-selling author. He shares with ShaoLan about the vision of Cue Ball, which is a long-term focused venture capital firm trying to invest in people and projects that may not bring quick profit but will bring positive change to society in the long-term. ShaoLan teaches the word for “risk” which has quite a picturesque meaning in Chinese, describing the wind blowing through a narrow mountain pass! Anthony also learns the Chinese word for Venture Capitalist as an extra bonus!
In Chinese, the word for “risk” is 風險/风险, which is made up of the word for “wind” 風/风and the word for “danger” 險/险, which actually shows a narrow mountain pass, which isn’t immediately dangerous but can be “risky.”
