Foong Yuh Wen
Founder & CEO of SushiVid
Formerly an equity research analyst and an aspiring actress, Yuh Wen has worked through multiple tech based startups in Singapore. These startups in its various stages have gone on to become some of the most successful startups in Asia today.
Her involvement in startups started early in 2011, when she was a business analyst at Cradle Fund, an agency under the Ministry of Finance that offer grants to tech startups in Malaysia or conceptualisation and commercialisation.
