About Me

In Asia's startup scene since 2010, with a personal mission to leverage technology to improve environmental and social conditions globally. Currently building EMURGO's global voice and marketing effort. EMURGO drives the adoption of Cardano by consulting, incubating, and investing into organizations to integrate them into Cardano. Cardano is a 3rd generation blockchain platform with features more advanced than any protocol yet developed; it's the first one to evolve out of a scientific philosophy, where feature development is driven by scientific peer reviewed white papers. Prior to EMURGO, led the international business of bike sharing Unicorn Mobike, acquired by Meituan-Dianping for USD 3.7 billion in April 2018. As the first foreign employee (#37), planned and executed international expansion, created public & private partnerships (UN Environment, MasterCard, etc), recruited brilliant teams, and oversaw growth in 20 countries. Prior to Mobike, founded WeSmart (energy management SaaS platform) servicing MNCs in greater China and raised USD 1 million in the company's first round of funding. Also Forbes 30 Under 30, Co-Director & Mentor @ Startup Grind, Mentor @ Chinaccelerator, Lecturer @ Shanghai University, occasional keynote speaker & panelist.
