I’ve started and had three successful exists on 2 internet businesses and 1 brick and mortar business.
Myzine.com - Founder and CEO of MyZine.com, a video sharing website that grew in viewership rapidly after launch. MyZine was one of the pioneers of video sharing online, and one of the major video sharing websites before YouTube was incorporated. MyZine.con saw 5,000 active daily views within 1 year. Successfully exited the business after just 1 year.
3GWRX.com - Founder and CEO of 3GWRX.com and all of its network sites. The forum membership grew rapidly and quickly saw 2,000 weekly active users. Successful exit in 2012. The site has since been renamed and grown further under its new owners.
Co-founded AsiaLawNetwork, and as the CTO of the company, led a team of off-site and outsourced developers to develop innovative and industry leading software for users on AsiaLawNetwork.com. Instrumental in the design and development of Quick Consult, a product which was recognised as the Best Innovation Infocomm Product/Solution in Digital Services Category at Singapore Infocomm Technology Federation (SiTF) Awards 2017.
