Join Startup Grind on Tuesday, November 27 at 6pm at Found @ Cuppage for a fireside chat with sisters Race and Rhonda Wong, Co-Founders of Ohmyhome.
Come hear the startup story behind one of Singapore's leading proptech companies which provides a marketplace for comprehensive solutions to simplify housing transactions for buying, selling or renting homes.
Since launch, Ohmyhome has helped simplify over 2,000 housing transactions, with a combined value close to S$850 million and helped to save consumers millions in commissions and agents fees.
The company recently raised S$4 million in Series A round led by Golden Equator Capital.
Ms. Rhonda Wong is the co-founder of Ohmyhome and serves as the Chief Executive Officer since its founding in 2015.
Rhonda’s wealth of experience in the business and the real-estate sector has helped her drive the company to become Singapore’s leading proptech marketplace for housing transactions.
Before Ohmyhome, Rhonda started Anthill Realtors, a real estate agency, at the age of 29 in 2014. Headquartered in Singapore, Anthill Realtors' forte is sourcing investment grade properties from within and abroad, with a one of a kind concierge service.
Rhonda graduated with distinction from Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan, with majors in Finance, Entrepreneurial, Accounting and a minor in Economics. While in University, she was also awarded the Carson Scholarship to study public policy in Washington D.C. Upon graduation, Rhonda joined Nico Trading
Chicago and was the only female trader employed at that time.
Ohmyhome is the brainchild of Ms Race Wong who serves as Chief Operating Officer and co-founder of the company.
She began conceptualizing Ohmyhome in the 1st quarter of 2015 when she came across some of the issues that people face when buying, selling, and renting a home. This prompted Race to develop smart solutions that simplify the housing transaction. Ohmyhome first targeted the HDB market, which is the largest sector of our housing market which around 82% of Singaporeans live in.
Race also co-founded Anthill Corporation, where she actively led the team in its marketing and communications activities.
Along with her professional career in the real estate sector, Race has also made her mark in the film and media industry. As a Cantopop artiste in Hong Kong for over 10 years, Race has 4 music albums, 6 TV dramas and 11
feature films to her name. Race bagged various music awards, such as Most Promising Newcomer (Group) in 2003 and Most Popular Group Gold Award in 2004. Race was also nominated for Best New Actor at the 42nd Golden Horse Film Awards.
