Event on 2015-11-18 18:30:00
Founders Drinks November: This Founders Drinks, we are welcoming serial entrepreneur Jon Yongfook to the Founders Drinks community. He is someone who knows and understands the true definition of what #startuplife really is – having founded/worked for/advised/mentored startups for the last 15 years. Come and learn from Yongfook's experiences in the best practices in bootstrapping, hiring, equity, business models and more. Who knows, you may just get a clearer insight into your very own journey. About the topic: In 2013 Yongfook built a software business while working from the beach, with no outside funding. The business grew over the next 2 years, and now he is using the profit from that software business to bootstrap a hardware business. Learn how he did it, the dos and don'ts, and why he think bootstrapping is the best way to get any business going. About the speaker: Jon Yongfook is an entrepreneur based currently in Singapore but is really a man of the world. He most recently founded Beatrix, a social media content marketing SaaS. Previously, Yongfook was Director (web) at Japanese e-commerce flash sales site Glamour Sales and Product Director (International) at Cookpad. Yongfook also launched Open Source Food in 2007, a recipe-sharing social network with an advertising-based revenue model which was acquired in 2009.
