February 9, 2021
Hosted by Molly Tschang
Say It Skillfully® is a show that helps you to benefit from Molly Tschang’s expert guidance on the best possible ways to speak your mind at work in a positive, productive manner. In Episode 66, 9th feature of OUR VOICES, Molly’s friend and top healthcare venture capitalist Nisa Leung shares her vivid journey across continents. Time in the US helped her mindset blossom; an unexpected and life-changing MBA experience culminated in a market crash—half her class couldn’t find jobs; 50% of friends in VC lost theirs. Before healthcare investing was vogue—Nisa saw China’s underserved market. Asked to set-up Qiming’s healthcare practice she led the firm to invest in 130 companies…vaccines, diagnostics, drugs to HC IT. She reveals intense commitment & collaboration of her companies on Covid front lines, thoughts on why China’s VC playing field is more gender-level and her aspirations ahead. Nisa inspires us to know no boundaries and models the best way to help others is to help them to succeed.
