I like Startup because I am a dreamer and like finding ways to realize my dream. Startup is perhaps the only option I have beside scientific research to work out my insights. Risk-taking and adventure-loving DNA surely help but it is my faith in God that keys my startup career. "Unless the Lord builds the house, They labor in vain who build it." (Psalms 127:1)

Future Impact Lab "Limited" (FILL) is like an official incarnation of my insights and core values: Design, Create, Connect, Share. FILL is designed to be a venture Starting from technology, and Maturing in Applications with Positive impact on mankind. We particularly picked Agriculture, Environment, and Elderly as our first focused areas. We believe in design thinking and collaborative effort, and we welcome talents to become part of FILL.

Prior to FILL, I also founded an R & D arm in Hong Kong for CTTC, a European R & D centre in Telecommunications. Perhaps being affected by my Stanford adventure, I ran the branch, CTTC-HK, in a lean and startup fashion, trying to create a space with room for innovations and sense of ownership. The results were not just interesting R & D outcomes like LiFi, but also invaluable experience in operation, management, strategic planning and execution, plus meeting many bright minds throughout the process.

Apart from Business, few friends and I also feel obliged to contribute to the industry we focused on, and subsequently founded the Hong Kong Internet of Things Association (IOTA), trying to enrich the definition of IoT perceived by the local community in Hong Kong. We aimed at creating more opportunities for everybody in the local eco-system and bridge them with the Greater China eco-system.

Share below a Startup Diagram from European Innovation Academy. The process and goals may not be exactly the same, but the energy and perseverance definitely resonate. :-)

I was at cross roads that might have directed my career to sports or photography. At last I realized that they were only my hobbies and I have better ways of making the world better based on what I was gifted. More to be updated...
