“Lim Kuo-Yi: VC Investing in South East Asia”


Southeast Asia has seen an impressive boom in the number of tech startups and the amount of venture capital funding raised. Monk’s Hill Ventures, an early stage VC focused on the region, is a key player in this evolution, and its founding partner, Dr Lim Kuo-Yi, will share the firm’s experience in this journey. He will also talk about investment origination, portfolio management, and fund raising, etc.

The Speaker

Prior to founding Monks’ Hill Ventures, Kuo-Yi was the CEO of Infocomm Investments, a $200M venture fund based in Singapore, investing in technology startups globally. Kuo-Yi led investments in Twilio, Dataxu, Reebonz, Quid, Gengo, DS3 and other leading startups.

Kuo-Yi has been a founder, early employee, mentor and angel investor of early-stage technology startups spanning the US and Asia. He was a senior sales executive at Encentuate (acq. by IBM) and Reputation Technologies (acq. by Security Sources), and co-founder of SportsHook, a sports-focused SaaS platform.

Kuo-Yi graduated from MIT with the bachelor, master's and doctorate degrees in electrical engineering. He describes a 'perfect day' as: Section 42, Row 37, Seat 21, Fenway Park, 80 degrees weather, a hot dog and a cold beer.
