Founder and General Partner, Openspace Ventures
Founder of Asian Food Channel (acquired by Scripps Networks Interactive, now part of Discovery Inc.), early investor of Go-Jek, Kumu and Board Member of Love, Bonito, Chope, Singapore Science Centre, FinAccel and Igloo, Hian Goh embodies the approach that "active intelligence" is what differentiates the great VCs from amongst the rest, creating the information asymmetry advantage. He also stands for the point that digital decolonisation, adressing regional problems very well at the granular level, can be as immensely successful as a global business.
