Ngai is the founder and CEO of Shenzhen-based start-up HelloTalk, a peer-to-peer language-learning messaging app that has 3.3 million registered users around the world.
HelloTalk works by matching users who, for example, speak English and want to learn Mandarin with users who speak Mandarin and want to learn English. The app offers additional translation and voice-to-text services for a fee.
Speaking to CNBC at the RISE conference in Hong Kong this week, Ngai says he came up with the language exchange idea in 2011 after his own experience learning English and Japanese.
