How ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ helped turn the fortunes of Brittany Chan into a billion-dollar company
- by admin
Brittannas fortune has been transformed into a $2.6 billion tech company.
Chan, the former co-owner of Facebook, is the founder of Britta and Britta Community, a nonprofit aimed at improving the lives of Asian Americans.
Chan told Forbes that the company was founded in 2007 and has grown to over 4,000 employees.
She says the nonprofit is working on a project to empower Chinese Americans with computer science and math, and also has plans to provide financial assistance to students in the U.S. that don’t have scholarships.
Chan says she hopes the program can help students become better citizens and better entrepreneurs.
“We need more young people who can speak Chinese, not just students.
So Britta has really taken on a big role in the history of the Chinese American community,” Chan said.
“It’s really a wonderful thing to see.”
Chan said the organization was born from the realization that “the Asian American community is the largest segment of our population, and we are not getting much credit for that.”
Chan says Britta is a unique brand for the Asian American demographic because it has a diverse audience and that the organization has been able to reach millions of people in Asia.
“People can relate to our brand, and they can relate with the message,” Chan explained.
“In addition to having a lot of Asian American people in our community, we also have many Chinese American people, and so the brand really resonates with people.”
The charity is working to expand its reach to include people who don’t speak English and are poor or underprivileged.
Chan is hopeful that the group will have a long-term impact on the Asian community, and hopes to help bridge the gap between the two communities.
Chan believes that Britta can be an engine of change for the community.
“Britta is like a fire in the community, because we’re all working towards the same goals,” Chan stated.
“If we don’t get together, if we don�t get organized, it�s not going to change anything.”
Chan added that the charity has a goal of becoming the largest non-profit organization in the country dedicated to serving Asian American youth, including the development of technology-related skills.
She hopes that the brand will inspire more young Asian Americans to take on leadership roles in their communities and to help develop more innovative companies.
Chan said that Brittas vision for the company has been one of success.
“Our mission is to change the world for the better.
We don�ts believe in any of these things,” Chan concluded.
