About Artie Wu

I founded Preside in 2011 as a hobby-project.

Before Preside, I was the founder-CEO of two venture-backed technology companies across the span of over 10 years. I still advise startups on fundraising strategy and management.

I hold degrees from Stanford (business school), Harvard (undergrad) and Regis (Jesuit secondary school).

I learned meditation as a child from family friends, and have been meditating for over 30 years.

The Path of Preside

My goal for Preside is to teach a diverse array of methods to help people manage, heal and empower their “inner voice”.

The inner voice is something we all have, that chattering, endlessly worried, constantly circling voice inside of us, which (for most people) is always hounding us and never lets us go.

Buddhists call it the “monkey mind”. Psych folks call it “mental self-talk”.

Over the course of teaching many thousands of students, and learning about their deeper needs and goals, I have structured our programs into three progressive phases:

  1. Meditation for Stress and Anxiety Relief
  2. Healing Self-Negativity
  3. Following Your Bliss

I welcome you to explore these areas and reach out to me with any questions you may have, I read and respond to every email personally.

My delight is to connect with people from different cultures and all walks of life, to hear about their life journeys and help them to blossom and unfold.

You may reach me anytime at artiew@presidemeditation.com, and I look forward to hearing from you!
