About this event

Steven Lam, Co-Founder & CEO of GoGoVan. Grew up from a low-income family in a public estate of East Kowloon, Steven Lam had gone through a very interesting life so far. He studied at Sing Yin Secondary School. He failed HKCEE the first time and retook it, then he got accepted to the popular Hang Seng School of Commerce (HSSC) for Advanced Level. However, he dropped out from HSSC and chose to study community college - Diablo Valley College (DVC) in California, U.S. and completely funded himself through school by working in Chinese restaurant as a delivery boy after school everyday. During his time in college, he was eBay power seller by selling unlocked first generation iPhone, automobile parts and electronics; he tried to sell hotdogs in school as well as helping people to repair computer and ask for donations. He also got elected as the Student Government President of DVC, which he was the first international student ever being a student government president of a California Community College. Then he got accepted to University of California, Berkeley - HAAS School of Business, which ranked as Top 3 Business School of the U.S. for undergraduate program. While studying at Berkeley, he worked in Bank of America Merrill Lynch and California congressman office. After graduated in 2010, he returned to HK and started his own business with two friends who studied in DVC and worked in the Chinese restaurant together. While they were working in their second venture, Boxad, a company put advertisements on lunch boxes, they experienced a big problem on booking vans for delivery service. Then they started working on GoGoVan, a mobile application which match the drivers and customers in terms of seconds with only $20,000 HKD as initial capital. GoGoVan is now operating in HK, SG, TW, KR and CN, with more than 45,000 registered vehicles and raised USD $16.5 millions.
