Start-up journey stage (1)


I have always wanted to run a business related to environmental protection.


As an amateur green inspired artist, I have been painting with recycled paper, plastic, and used wood block, hoping to increase social awareness related to over consumption. It has been my little hobby shared with a little circle of friends.


Then I bump into an accelerator & startup launch program called Founder Institute based in Silicon Valley during my stay in Seattle. Their "FI for good" initiative caught my eyes.


The CEO Adeo Ressi statements below deeply resonate with me :


1. There is no shortage of big problems facing humanity, but there is a shortage of ambitious startups trying to solve them.


2. As the world becomes more connected and technology infiltrates the very fabric of our society, there has never been a better time for tech startups to make a difference and change the world.


3. We cannot rely on just government. Entrepreneurs can fix the world's problems.


Equipped with some business background, a lot of passion, and a geeky fiancee, I applied to FI Hong Kong and got accepted.


The first session I had no idea what I was doing, I told the directors of the program Jeffrey and Leo, "I'm here to learn and network."


Today, after 14 sessions, I have officially graduated !!! What did I learn in 4 months ? Wow !!! I did learn and network a lot !!! I came up with the idea of creating a purpose driven platform to encourage more people to cut on their meat intake, by rewarding users with any receipts with vegetarian / vegan menu. The idea has never given up on me, so I'm positive I'm on the right track. The idea serves the same purpose of protecting the environment which I have been wanting to do, but in a much bigger scale with help of technology, and my geeky fiancee CTO.


I met a lot of like-minded people from around the world during the process, and I'm prepared for the next challenge which is to launch in Spring 2020 !! Stay Tuned !
