Speakers and Discussants
Mr. Shing-yuk CHOW
Founder and CEO, Lalamove
Mr. Shing CHOW excelled academically. He scored 10 distinctions in HKCEE, and graduated with distinction from Stanford University. With all these academic achievements and proximity to silicon valley, he proceeded to miss the biggest internet trend in the US, and instead came back to HK and became a management consultant in 1999. Not learning from the first miss, he again missed the chance to participate in the internet boom in China from 2002 to 2013, where giant internet companies like alibaba, tencent, and baidu were being built. He instead chose to become a professional texas holdem player during that period. Finally waking up in late 2013 and for the first time seeing how mobile internet will transform our future, he set out to build EasyVan, a platform connecting goods and drivers. He is hoping this will not come too late.
Shing graduated from Stanford University in California, USA with a BA in Economics.
