Founder and Partner of Mekong Capital

Chris Freund is the founder and partner of Mekong Capital, an investment company based in Vietnam. I have been working with Chris and his team over the last six months on Storytelling. Chris is one of the most authentic leaders I have had the pleasure to work with.

Episode 11

In this podcast you will hear his insights into Authentic Leadership. He talks about why he demoted himself as Managing Partner to Partner, even taking a pay-cut! How many leaders would do that? He also discusses what took him from Chicago to Ho Chi Minh City and his love of quantum physics when trying to understand the origins of everything. Join us as we converse about religion, language and 80’s music!
