    Luis von Ahn, founder & CEO of Duolingo

    Luis von Ahn, founder & CEO of Duolingo

    In this conversation, Luis von Ahn breaks down how he's been able to conceptualize and execute multiple crowdsourcing projects – from reCAPTCHA to Duolingo.

And when it works, it can be the rocket fuel that launches you to scale further than you could have ever imagined.
