What motivates you?

Backing the game changer in its industry and rolling up my sleeves to stir up its success.

What’s been the steepest learning curve on your career journey so far?

The switch from being a generalist management consultant to a venture capitalist. Not just the in-depth specific industry knowledge I needed to learn on-the-job to assist the operational turnaround of portfolio companies, but also the extensive financial and legal knowledge I needed to pick up in a very short timeframe to help in assessing different options for financing/exit.

Which tech trend are you most excited about at the moment and why?

Augmented/virtual reality. Despite companies throwing their hats into the field for quite some time it's yet to hit mass market, I am aligned with the belief that AR/VR is going to be the future given its endless applications, from conducting virtual surgeries in healthcare to easing learning difficulties and dangers with full sensory immersion in military training; not to mention how far we can bridge each other with more tangible and real AR/VR social network.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?

Gear up and use your fear like fuel.
