Cynthia had her first taste of business at the age of 10 selling fancy pencils as part of a class activity. During her schooling years she enjoyed selling coupons and participating in her school's annual carnival.
Cynthia completed her Bachelor of Business degree with Nanyang Technological University (NTU, Singapore). She has started 5 businesses since 2009, and closed 2 of them. Although she lost the businesses, she leveraged on those lessons to build better businesses. One of the business went on to surpass a turnover of MYR1M in less than 18 months of its operations.
Cynthia led her team to fundraise angel investments of more than MYR3M where she travelled to cities like Jakarta, Bangkok, Singapore, Taipei and the furthest was Warsaw to meet with investors.
She is the go-to person for entrepreneurs who want to know how to start, how to avoid mistakes in building in a business and capital raising from investors.
Not perfect, but it is my first version writing these points from my own experience and observation having been in touch with many, many other business owners, startup founders, corporate leaders, business consultants and coaches, etc. Here it is my gift for you!
