This week host Brian MacMahon speaks with Nan Zhang.

In this episode, Brian and Nan talk about her background – how she went from being an actress to a neuroscientist and now an entrepreneur. The two also talk about the struggles and joys of being a female entrepreneur, how MyMarkIt started, how they are creating a new way to shop and Nan’s amazing growth plan for the next year.

Few words from MyMarkit:

MyMarkit (stealth mode Vision Interchange) is a first-of-its-kind fintech transaction marketplace that lets users shop directly and bypass loss in value. This novel approach allows value/currency to be attached directly to commodities to retain more worth for both retail and resale items (not bartering/swapping). We attach IP ledgers and automated passive sensors to facilitate 100% fail-proof authentication at scale. VI is the initial iteration applied to the vision market through a top ten accelerator. We are launching the general marketplace, MyMarkit, for luxury/millennial collectibles/brands.
