My name is Yu-Lin Yang, and I'm the co-founder of HaulTalk, an online fashion e-commerce and video platform, and the President of Transcend UW, the largest student run innovation competition in the United States. I stumbled into the intersection of engineering and entrepreneurship by accident, but I found that I love not only building products that drive change, but also empowering other like-minded students to innovate.
HaulTalk is a fashion-focused, shoppable video content platform that provides an engaging communal experience and generates highly desirable trend data. We won the "Best Pitch Award" at the Transcend Madison Innovation Competition in April 2018.
I'm currently a data science intern at Discover Financial Services. Last summer, I was a software engineering intern at MAGIX, which built VEGAS PRO, a multi-million-dollar video editing software. I built 4 features that are in the final version of the product which garnered a multitude of praise from our users.
At school, I'm the President of Transcend UW, a community that inspires entrepreneurship and innovation. I lead a diverse team of 11 ambitious individuals to inspire the Madison student community to create businesses and innovative ideas that will change the world.
I also love photography and cinematography. As a freelancer, I've made trailers, hype videos, and project videos for school, friends, and real clients. As a hobby, I've made videogame cinematics as well.
