I'm a techie to the bone. I believe in the emerging technocracy. I enjoy seeing intelligent and skilled people lead the world forward and earn their right to do so.
I build tech companies - and now I also am a founding GP behind SE-Asia's first tech incubator.
Hmmm well - I like to keep surprising myself I guess.
I graduated with my first degree (BSc. software engineering) at 19 and was pretty excited to jumpstart on an early career in tech. I never really celebrate about achievements though; I'm already eager for the next thing.
In numbers its pretty simple: I've been tech-lead/tech-founder of 7 successful tech startups, 2 that exited big ($3bn, $6bn) and a third that might soon. But my favorite achievements were what I did with that money. Spent 90% of it building NGO's and NPO's in the world's most devastated and exploited regions.
Now I'm building a company that I think will really do something meaningful. Putting both of my careers in academics and technology together, to solve education technology worldwide.
