Truth be told,
I have much to learn about life and love. I travel the world, meet new people and listen to their stories. I speak Mandarin and Bahasa Indonesia, and tinker with Urdu, Hokkien and Javanese.
From frying plantains in the kitchens of Mozambique to working on fishing boats in the Maldives and counselling Tibetan refugees in North India — I spent more than a year traveling the world and exploring various cultures.
I guess I just wanted to see what’s out there.
Today I’m part of the Harvard MBA Class of 2019. I’d be a fool to think the MBA is a “golden passport”. I just see myself as a sponge at Harvard, listening more than speaking, and soaking up the collective knowledge of my classmates.
My passion lies in venture - both building and investing into startups. I'm currently working with GGV Capital, refining their investment thesis for Southeast Asia, my beloved homeland. Prior to Harvard, I worked with Monk's Hill Ventures, leading deal sourcing and execution across the region.
I graduated from the LSE and started my career in London at Strategy& (formerly Booz & Co), working with large corporates and PE funds such as KKR, Blackstone and Warburg Pincus. Previously I was with Conciliation Resources NGO, assisting in strategic planning for peacebuilding projects in the Caucasus, Central Africa and South Asia.
I like world cultures and venture investing, and have an angel portfolio of 8 companies. I also enjoy diving and learning new things.
