I walked a path like many before me. Graduating with a degree in Mechanical Engineering from the National University of
Singapore, I have always been fascinated by the latest innovations and inventions in technology. Going into engineering was not a surprise to anyone who knew me well, and my university days cemented my pursuits.
Not long after, I started my first business using capital accumulated from several gigs while in school. I invested in technology solutions that were merely ideas, developing them into products to sell to companies. I would invest in intellectual property rights around the globe followed by innovating and designing products. Solutions were developed for sectors like water treatment, alternative energy, and nanotechnology.
Following these successes in commercializing technology, I started another company to expand my passion for matching innovative products and technology for industry adoption, while at the same time creating investment opportunities for clients.
As an entrepreneur, I am privileged to have a front row seat, through which I could observe the shifts in how technology is developed, adopted, and now, the emergence of “bedrock” technologies that will disrupt the world as we know it. The future is coming faster than we imagine. We have no option but to keep up.
