I was fortunate enough to be an editor of Verse Magazine for a year. These are all of my articles published with Verse during my time as a student at the University of South Australia.

In[ter]view: Jindou Lee

In Verse's last interview of the year Jesse Neill speaks with Jindou Lee, CEO and founder of HappyCo, a software development company that helps automate property operations. Beginning in 2011, Jindou developed Happy Inspector, an iOS app aimed at addressing the lack of standardised documentation in property inspections. After moving to Silicon Valley in 2012 following the success of Happy Inspector, Jindou and his team developed Happy Manage and Happy Insights, forming the umbrella company HappyCo in 2015. Jindou discusses the unexpected success of Happy Investor and his move to Silicon Valley, as well as ways of encouraging young entrepreneurs to stay in Adelaide to boost innovation in this exciting but overlooked city.
