Fintech is rushing into Singapore like a wave, bringing with it startups that are attempting to revolutionise the ways that businesses and individuals are managing and accessing money. Amongst that pool is Funding Societies, a startup that crowdfunds for entrepreneurs who are looking for a faster, better way of obtaining funding to expand and sustain their businesses.
But the founder of Funding Societies would raise a few eyebrows in the financial industry. Still in his twenties, Kelvin Teo studied at Harvard Business school and worked for McKinsey and KRR Capstone before leaving the corporate sector. He’s come a long way from his sleepy hometown in Johor to achieve great things with his new startup.
