STARTUP PROJECTS I LED OR CO-FOUNDED IN THE PAST.

COZi Living

(2017-Present | Boston)

A Co-Living Conceptual Project

COZi offers city living for business travelers at affordable rates. Built by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs, we understand what startups and SMBs need (and “don‘t” need) when they are on the road. We don’t have a luxurious jacuzzi you never used in your service apartments (but still being charged anyway). Instead, we promise a prime location to quickly navigate through meetings, a hassle-free on-site and virtual managers to help out whenever, and a cozy home for you to return and recharge. More importantly, we offer a business networking community you can tap in on the go. 

At COZi, we are your second home away from home, at an affordable rate.

What’s Been Achieved

  • Tripled the rental cashflow in two years
  • Achieved an over 90% occupancy rate
  • Acquired a 4.8 (out of 5.0) average rating from 450+ customer reviews
  • Applied technology and streamlined operations to increase efficiency and customer satisfaction 

Keel

(2017-2019 | Boston)

A Fintech Startup to Power Personal Financial Data Aggregation

Keel uses proprietary technology to power fintech startups and financial services’ fintech applications. We help alleviate 80% of their data burden by aggregating, normalizing, and cleaning the disorganized (and often incorrect) financial data. 

What’s Been Achieved

  • Aggregated and analyzed over $1 billion worth of trades. 
  • Partnered with leading financial institutions on data API
  • Named as 50 Boston Startups to Watch; won the second place at Boston Startup Challenge; graduated from the largest fintech incubator in Boston/NY

Pamperologist

(2014-2016, Singapore)

A Mobile Market Place for Local Beauty Salons

This is my first startup where I solely managed a tech team of three to launch a mobile app on both iOS and Android back in 2014, when mobile app was still a nuance. Learned a ton on how to manage a tech product to quickly launch and test the market. 

 

What’s Been Achieved

  • Drove the app’s early adoption at an extremely low acquisition cost (< US$1/download) by hosting several events and promotions with local partners.
