Steven Tong

Managing Director, Startupbootcamp FinTech

I got my start in the Singapore Civil Service managing and implementing IT infrastructure projects. I then spent over 5 years in Edtech providing consultancy to schools and entrepreneurs building products that improve teaching and learning. This is my first foray into innovation where boundaries are constantly pushed to create new experiences.

The 5 plus years in Silicon Valley working with tech MNCs and startups and constant exposure to tech visionaries was a life changing experience. I returned from Silicon Valley to become a VC and made investments in accelerators, VC funds and startups. I now employ my multi-faceted skills in scouting and investing in FinTech startups, advising entrepreneurs on their business strategy, product, business operations etc, and expanding Startupbootcamp in Asia.

In a nutshell, my passion for startups and innovation is coupled with a love for big-picture strategic planning and daily operational management. I’m not the investor who just wants to write a check. I’m the operator who actually wants to ideate, plan, develop and lead.
