Marina Tognetti, founder of Myngle
The concept of Myngle was created when founder Marina Tognetti was struggling to learn Chinese. A fully packed agenda, high prices and low availability of Chinese teachers were the main cause of a lot of grief and almost made her give up entirely. She then had a brainwave and realized that in fact it shouldn’t be at all hard to find a good Chinese teacher – there are probably thousands of them in China! She resigned from her manager position at Ebay, together with 3 partners, she started Myngle. Now, a few years later, Myngle is providing affordable and high quality online language lessons to thousands of people all over the world.
