Tell us about yourself?

Just a regular 21 year old fascinated by cars, airplanes and finance. An associate today and possibly one of the applicants for an Accelerating Asia cohort in the future, who knows?

I am not very fond of dogs

What are you currently reading or watching?

Random YouTube videos mostly about poker, aircrafts, cars and travel.

What are you looking forward to most about working with our investor network?

Just learning more about the industry and growing my skill sets. I want to build strong personal relations and see how things go.

Opportunity & Why Accelerating Asia
What most excites you about joining the Accelerating Asia team?

It’s a relaxed environment focused on achieving results. The team is very experienced in what it does so it is a good opportunity for me to pick everyone’s brain and just learn more.

In your role as Venture Associate, what are you looking forward to doing or learning?

Learning more about the VC industry and the nuances like waterfall structures, carry, and talking and convincing people to invest in our vision.

Any advice for students or grads looking to get into the startup ecosystem?

“If you are the smartest person in the room then you are in the wrong room”.

Stay hungry, stay foolish.
