Two of his startups failed. Now, this 30-year-old just bagged $32 million for his company

Sae Hyung-jung remembers a time when he worried about not having enough money for his next meal. 

He was 20 years old, and had just founded an artificial intelligence (AI) company that helped students improve their test scores for university entry examinations — but it wasn’t doing well.
