COO Secrets: Stephanie Leung

In episode 13 of our COO Secrets series, we speak with Stephanie Leung, Co-Founder and COO at the incredible startup Tiney.

Tiney is a high growth marketplace platform for both working parents and childminders, aimed at helping experienced educators open joyful childcare settings from their own home.

Previously, Stephanie held the role as Regional Director at Uber, where she covered about 19 countries including Eastern Europe, Nordics, Benelux and the UK.

Stephanie always wanted to be an entrepreneur, so combining her operations experience from her time at Uber with her mission to make a change in children’s’ early year education, made her take the plunge and start Tiney.

In today’s video, Stephanie tells us more about her journey to becoming a COO, how every COO should place operations at the heart of what they do, and her three top tips for aspiring COOs, like you.
