I’m An Investor
My passion for business and entrepreneurship spills over into my interest in other promising entrepreneurs and ventures. It is a thrill when a talented individual/team whose values match mine, collides with a fantastic idea, and flawless execution. The result is magical, and this is what I’m looking for here. Via my personal platform, or Aspire Asia, a collective of investors from diverse industries (Which I co-founded), I’m constantly seeking out level headed, profit driven, entrepreneurs who seek to tap monetary investment, experience or networks from me.
My Investment Thesis
Whilst my entrepreneurial experience has been in the technology/social media sector, my investment scope is considerably wider. Primarily what I am looking for are hungry business founders, who are revenue and profit driven, and are looking to get a headstart, and introduce a multiplier into the equation.
What I have to offer
I fundamentally believe in letting founders get on with their thing after investing equity. However, I also encourage them to tap onto my networks and experience in the Social Media space and beyond to get the most out of my involvement. It isn’t a one size fits all model, and really depends on each individual entrepreneur.
