Khailee Ng

Managing Partner, 500 Startups
Location: Malaysia

Only in his early 30s, this serial entrepreneur is a master of reinvention, having transformed himself from a self-professed tech geek to a venerable venture capitalist. A force behind a number of top-performing technology startups in Malaysia like Grab and Fave, the managing partner of 500 Startups describes his goal as building ‘weapons of mass creation’ through funding and propelling start-ups for growth. Through his company's Southeast Asia Durian 500 Fund, he heads one of the most active tech investors in the region, with over 160 companies benefiting from his efforts. On a personal note, Khailee has also overhauled his life in the past two years by embracing a minimal, vegan lifestyle.
