Having transitioned from a pet subscription service entrepreneur to VC, Angela was an early pioneer within the startup community and assists our founders through their professional and personal journeys. Today, she is shaping conversations on mental wellness within the startup ecosystem in Singapore and Southeast Asia.
As one of the earliest to join the team, Angela represents the firm on board and shareholder meetings and manages the portfolio support team, ensuring that the portfolio receives the help and resources they need and eliminating roadblocks for the companies in their growth. She also guides the portfolio on fundraising strategies and helps with investor connections for companies that are going out for subsequent financings. Internally, Angela oversees the Portfolio Management, Fund Administration and Operations functions of the fund and had helped set up the operations and compliance functions of the fund when she joined in 2014.
Angela graduated with Honours in Accountancy from Nanyang Technological University in 2008 and started her career in Ernst & Young specializing in the audit of Financial Institutions such as banks and asset managers. A few notable institutions in her audit portfolio included Societe Genarale, Mizuho Corporate Bank and UOB.
Today, Angela adds her personal mandate of mental wellness to the mission – ensuring start-up founders become the best of themselves and stay resilient to prevent entrepreneurial burnout.
