Journalist

I had a sudden bug to write and have been addicted to writing since. since 2015, I have been a journalist and writer, writing over 80 articles on Tech in Asia, an Asian tech news publication, on “Startup Advisories“, “Asian Tech ecosystems“, “Entrepreneurial Stories“, “Engineering in Singapore” and “Science and Technology Development in Singapore“.

I have interviewed over 85 persons now on their perspectives of the startup ecosystems, including exclusives with Ryan Homes (Hootsuite), Getty Goh (CoAssets), Peter Ho (Hope Tecnik) and more.

All these articles have been inspired by my experiences as a fund manager of Tri5 Ventures, a mentor at Angels Gate Advisory and my community activities with Singapore or travelling and visiting other ecosystems. It has been a fun experience engaging new entrepreneurs in different ecosystems and I look forward to even more engagements in the field of Venture Capital.
