I love hanging out at the intersection between technology, entrepreneurship and venture. I believe technology is the single greatest lever to nudge the world toward a better place.
I co-founded Forge Ventures (FV), a Singapore headquartered seed VC firm, where we aim to partner with ambitious founders building for the future of Southeast Asia. I am also a venture partner at Next Billion Ventures, looking at investing in the best founders in Southeast Asia. Previously, I was a partner and founding team member at SeedPlus, a seed fund in Southeast Asia. Take a look at my investment portfolio at my AngelList profile.
I previously launched and led market development efforts for Evernote in Asia Pacific, while running the Singapore office.
I’ve worked on product management, business development and marketing management as part of a start-up team in Singapore. We dealt with mobile applications & payments, during the Cambrian explosion of apps & app stores. Unfortunately we were as short lived as Microsoft’s ill fated Windows Phone experiment. :)
In my past life, I was a medical device engineer in California. In my free time, I tinker with web / mobile coding + writing random snippets of scripts, but mostly good at breaking stuff instead of fixing things. I also read too much comics for my own good.
I also write at Dads in Tech, where I interview fathers in the technology scene about their fatherhood journey.
