Dr. Richard Liu founded LEAP.ai, a professional development platform to help students and young professionals discover amazing opportunities while learning about their own passions and abilities.

As a long time tech exec at Google, Richard was a key leader of a number of Google businesses, including Enterprise Search, Shopping, Offers and Project Fi.
