Yehong Zhu

Yehong Zhu is the Founder and CEO of Zette, a Top Woman Entrepreneur in Media & Ad Tech, and a Forbes 30 Under 30 honoree.

A first generation Chinese-American, Zhu is a philosophy graduate of Harvard University and an avid writer. It was her experience as a business reporter in the Forbes newsroom that inspired her to found Zette. “I wanted to build a better way to access high quality content, while also ensuring journalists could still get paid.”

Zhu later worked at Twitter, where she was a product manager on two teams in San Francisco and London, working with designers and engineers to ship features across Twitter's 400M users.

Bridging the gap between premium journalism and consumer technology, Zhu founded Zette—the "Netflix for News." Today Zette is a venture-backed news AI startup that gives readers pay-per-article access to hundreds of publications while sharing revenue with newsrooms.
