Nay Aung – struggles and successes of young entrepreneurs


This Associated Press article featured on The Irrawaddy provides the reader with some insight into the struggles and successes of young entrepreneurs like Nay Aung returning to Burma. They are brave risk takers who have entered a business environment still wobbly on its feet. At the same time they are the hope for Burma’s future.

I met Nay in California when he was working at Google and after that at some tech startups. He is a very good friend and I have a great deal of respect for him. We have kept in close touch after he returned to Burma to start Oway Travel, an innovative online travel company. He works long and hard hours to keep his company efficient and competitive. I know his effort will be rewarding, not only for him, but for his country as well. – Hal Nathan, Partners Asia
