It was founded by Melvin Wong, an award-winning entrepreneur with global business experience in 17 countries covering U.S, Europe, Asia and South America. He has been a tech entrepreneur for 14 years now and it all started when he left a software development job when he got an idea for a startup. Back then, there was virtually no funding for early-stage startups in his country. So, he ran the entire startup all by himself in a small rented room with a starting capital of merely $3,000. With almost zero savings, he survived with a credit card for six months. He had to do everything from coding to sales and marketing and even customer support. Surprisingly, his startup was profitable in the first year. It eventually grew and went forward to win numerous local and international awards and ultimately was acquired by a Japanese/American company in Los Angeles. Melvin had the privilege to be mentored by Jeff Hoffman, the ex-CEO of Priceline, who also was the advisor of his startup. He is proud of his company's diversity, where he hired about 100 people from 17 countries.
Now, he wants to educate you with all his skills as a "tried and tested" entrepreneur and help people apply the skills with the least cost possible.
