Presenter: Meng Weng Wong

Meng started and exited two startups in the US. Returning to Singapore, he perpetuated the cycle of abuse as an angel investor and mentor at JFDI.Asia. At JFDI, in the course of developing a portfolio of 60+ startups, Meng had to help draft and execute dozens of legal agreements for each startup. To his horror he discovered startup financing is currently a manual process involving corporate secretaries and expensive lawyers, hence a ripe opportunity for software innovation and the basis for an opensource startup serving a global market. Meng programs in Perl and Javascript, and is now learning Prolog, Clojure, and Haskell.
