View this email in your browser

In 2019, Alfred, Philip and I started a new non-profit called FoundersHK with the goal to support Hong Kong founders and connect them to Silicon Valley.  Tonight, we are hosting our very first demo day for 11 accelerator companies.  As someone who was born and raised in Hong Kong, I am very proud to see that Hong Kong is now the #1 startup city in Asia (excluding China) and home to 9 unicorns including, Airwallex, Prenetics, Animoca Brands, Amber Group, GOGOX, Klook, LalaMove, POIZON, and WeLab.

Despite both the social unrest and COVID, founders in Hong Kong are staying strong and going full force. According to Crunchbase, over 105 Hong Kong companies raised more than $3,750,437,112 USD in 2021 and I believe we will continue to remain #1 for the rest of this year. =). I learned so much from our companies in the past 8 weeks. Philip, Bonnie and I are really going to miss our weekly get togethers.  We are super proud of our companies and would love the world (aka you) to meet them.  Join us here

I travelled to Los Angeles for the very first time since the pandemic begins this past week and spoke at Saastr on the topic of Launching Your Startup From $0 to $10M in Revenue. Check out my super fun meme-based slide.

My partner Alfred Chuang wrote this awesome opinion piece in VentureBeat on the topic Predictive Transactions and how it will impact enterprise infrastructure. When transactions move from enhancing decisions (i.e. recommended bundle items) to predicting purchase decisions, predictive transaction processing is about to upend the model of the last 57 years of computing and change the way we live, work, shop, and entertain.

You think your credit card bill was high. markets wobbled as Evergrande missed an $83M payment — and it’s just the tip of the iceberg. Investors fear that Evergrande's collapse could cause a Lehman-esque global stock slump. If Evergrande defaults,HSBC, BlackRock, and UBS, could lose big money.
