Grant Horsfield, founder of Naked Hub: $400 million sale to WeWork

After finishing his MBA in South Africa and moving to China in 2006, Grant was interested in selling to the Chinese, not buying from them. He started Naked Group, a luxury brand of resorts, and Naked Hub, a community and design focused coworking company that was acquired by WeWork for $400 million after 3 years of being on the Chinese market.

On this episode of the Startup Exits Podcast, we chat with Grant about:

• Startup environment in China

• Startups in US vs China

• Future of the modern office

• WeWork acquisition

• Brand building

• Disrupting education

Grant is currently focused on disrupting education and making the lives of teachers better.

    Albert Einstein said, 'If you can't explain it simply enough, you haven't understood it well enough'.Dr Andrew brings such simplicity to explaining the workings of the brain. It's actually a hacker's guide into our own brain. You are doing great service to humanity Dr Andrew.
