High-tech companies are constantly being created in Silicon Valley in California, but many face challenges. Raymond Wu shares his experience of co-founding Wynd, an air quality startup. He got the idea of creating an air quality app from his travels to China, where he was born, and seeing the growing air pollution there. He came to the United States as a young boy.

“I hope to enable healthy environments for everyone, similar to what I got to enjoy as a child,” he said.
