Chris Chong

Co-Founder, Groupon Singapore
I’ve seen it all, from pitches so bad the whole room died of laughter, to experiencing my own failed startups and some success with Groupon Singapore which has allowed me to reach a financial goal. At 20, I took a break from my law degree to co-found my first startup, Beeconomic, which was fully acquired by Groupon (a USD$24M buyout in a record-breaking 6 months, according to The Straits Times newspaper). After Groupon Singapore, I worked on 4 startups that failed, which taught me important lessons about failure. I then worked as social media editor for Hong Kong newspaper The South China Morning Post, where Jack Ma's Alibaba acquired the newspaper after the team achieved strong digital growth. After, I became a full-time advisor for a $100M Japanese VC, scouting for new prospects and advising the portfolio’s entrepreneurs. I am an entrepreneur who knows exactly how it feels to be guide-less and isolated and I’ve met a lot of kind people on my travels who were willing to help me. I host a free podcast that interviews Asia's fast-growing entrepreneurs, idealists, and trendsetters on the hardships they've had to overcome to make it in their industry. I hope for my podcast to be my way of paying it forward.
