• About

    Head of Strategic Projects at Monk's Hill Ventures, a leading early-stage tech venture capital firm in Southeast Asia. Previously, I co-founded CozyKin, an early education marketplace, and led the startup as CEO from 0 to Series A to sale. We grew to $8M ARR with $16M in the sales pipeline, fundraised over $8M capital and improved Net Promoter Score from 20% to industry-leading 79%. I co-founded and bootstrapped Conjunct Consulting, an impact consulting platform, to deliver over 285 engagements, train thousands of new leaders, and reached profitability. I consulted across multiple SE Asia markets and China as a Bain management consultant. I also served as an infantry sergeant in Singapore.

    Recognized by Forbes 30 Under 30 and Prestige 40 Under 40. Won Harvard Business School's New Venture Competition and the MassChallenge grand prize. Incubated by Harvard Innovation Lab's VIP Program and MIT Sandbox. Speaker and panelist for entrepreneurship, leadership and community engagement.

    Harvard MBA and double honor degrees in Economics & Business Administration from UC Berkeley. I relax by podcasting interviews of tech trailblazers at www.jeremyau.com, running electoral polls at www.quad.sg and hiking.
