Peter Thiel, co-founder of Paypal, created the the Thiel Fellowship, to give USD 100,000 [MYR 405,000] to young people who want to build new things instead of sitting in a classroom. Jeremy Chai is a recipient of the 2015 Scholarship and will be joining ServisHero for a breakfast session from Silicon Valley via Google Hangout.
