International Education Software, ABD, and Karaoke with Brandon Lee of Terra Dotta

International Education Software - Brandon Lee - Inside Study Abroad

 This week I’m bringing you an interview I did a couple of years ago with Brandon Lee, the CEO and co-founder of Terra Dotta. I first heard Brandon’s story during a chat at CIEE in Shanghai and knew I had to share his journey with the rest of the IE community.

Here’s what you’ll learn in this episode:

  • What random event introduced this small town Wisconsin guy to big wide world
  • Why Brandon chose France/French as his focus
  • How Brandon and Garrett found themselves in the tech/software industry
  • What the heck is philology?
  • The BIG moment and opportunity that became the launch of Terra Dotta
  • Brandon’s tips for small, one-person offices
  • Why Terra Dotta started their notorious conference karaoke events
  • Why Brandon received death threats a few years into the business
  • What TD looks for in new employees
