MichelleChen HeadshotNew York, NY, June 9, 2022 Starmind, an AI technology that seamlessly connects employees to expert knowledge they need in real-time, today announces that Michelle Chen has joined its Board of Directors. Chen is experienced in growing technology companies globally. For the past 20 years, she has held leadership positions in the US, Europe, and Asia. 

“I value people over process, practicality over theory, doing over talking,” noted Michelle Chen. “The Starmind technology can solve a huge information crisis that all companies face. I recognize the value it would have had for my teams and me, and I’m excited to help foster growth for Marc and his team. Knowledge is power, but the right knowledge makes you invincible.”

As Chief Product Officer at Typeform, Chen was instrumental in Typeform’s achievement of doubling Typeform’s revenue in just 18 months. She also has a proven track record of growing tech companies with their expansion into international markets, including US, Europe, and Asia. Chen’s most notable successes stem from her contributions to Uber China’s hypergrowth. During her tenure as the Head of Product, Uber China Growth & Expansion, Uber China’s valuation grew from $0.5B to $7B, and its market share increased from 1% to 20%+.

"Michelle’s unique people-first skillset aligns with our human-centric knowledge management solution that enables enterprises to leverage inaccessible knowledge and empowers employees to showcase their knowledge and experience,” noted Starmind CEO Marc Vontobel. “She brings a track record of hypergrowth within tech companies that have permanently transformed how things were once done with their revolutionary products.
