I started my entrepreneurial career in the early 2000s, utilising my graphic design skills to help SMEs produce printed design works. Riding the wave of the internet boom, I partnered with an IT expert to provide web design/development services to Australian SMEs, and international brands like McDonald’s and Fujitsu - so I have a solid foundation for building websites, online marketing and growth hacking.
Predicting the decline in the web development market, I continued with my entrepreneurial spirit by diving into the eCommerce market. My website, Le Domaine, was quickly nominated as a finalist in the Australian ORIA awards.
I also founded a coffee chain from scratch in Hong Kong, successfully pitched for funding from the Hong Kong government and then sold it for a profit within 12 months. In 2016, I moved back to Australia and started working with a Chinese investor, taking Dailongnet (袋⻰⽹) into a new era of Worldwide Knowledge Distribution with voice-based Q&A.
I have also been part of the startup team at Jobs for NSW, assessed over 500 MVP and Building Partnership grant applications and have helped countless startup founders access government funding.
