Meet the NewCampus team: Will Fan, co-founder and CEO

From pasta recipes to brand partnerships, Will infuses everything with his creativity and drive

NewCampus helps you fit learning into your life through daily discussion-led classes, hosted by virtual instructors, delivered in inspiring offline classrooms. Our team is global and remote first. We’re part nerdy, part creative but we all share a passion for changing the way people learn and grow. Keep life in beta.

In this post, let’s meet Will Fan, the co-founder and CEO at NewCampus.

A creative storyteller, Will is an overly competitive board game enthusiast, and has a sweet spot for pasta.

Three words that describe you?

Driven, family-oriented, different.

What do you do at NewCampus?

I look after enterprise sales, partnerships and evangelizing the brand.

Why did you join NewCampus? What excites you about what you do?

I started the company to scratch my own itch. Now, I get to meet and spend time with interesting people every day and have grown to love solving a lifelong problem, for lifelong learners.

How do you incorporate lifelong learning into your schedule?

I watch YouTube religiously — from DIY tutorials to pasta making series. Not the most impactful to my daily role, but it allows me to feel efficient when I’m on the go, or winding down for the day.

What/who inspires you?

I think I extract elements from people whom I can learn from, regardless of how successful they are. Currently, I’m inspired by Ashley Flowers and Brit Prawat, founders at Crime Junkie Podcast.

Share a book/podcast/article (with relevant data and links) that inspired you and tell us why it impacted you

I’ve been on a Crime Junkie Podcast binge for the past few weekends. Do check them out if you’re a crime junkie, or love dog stories.

What do you do outside of work for fun?

I’m a serious, amateur Dota (Defense of the Ancient) player, an online strategic esports team game. Recently, I rejoined ClassPass for yoga and working out. #2019goals

What’s the best piece of advice you can give to anyone?

Opportunities are best found where no one is looking. If it doesn’t feel right, and if your peers advise against it, it’s probably worth exploring.

Your favourite quote/motto

I don’t really live by quotes or a motto, but I do tell people to find a mission they want to serve for the rest of their life. Everything else will fall in place.
