Hey, I'm Kevon Cheung!

I'm now based in Hong Kong after spending some time in Boston and Singapore. I'm a creator, writer, and venture builder. Recently, I've also become a proud new dad with a baby girl #GirlDad.

All About Venture Building

My love for creating software started when I was 12. I built a number of websites that attracted hundreds of thousands of users. Since then, I've been starting and advising tech ventures.

I started my career as a Software Engineer in Singapore. Then I spent 4 years at First Code Academy, a leading technology education company offering coding programs for kids aged 4 to 18 years old across Asia. When I joined First Code, we had 5 people in Hong Kong and by the time I left my role as COO, we had scaled to 4 countries with 35 full-time and 50 part-time.

Recently, I was the co-founder and CEO of Toasty, a video collaboration platform making video meetings and gatherings more interactive.

I am a creator and builder, and my strengths are developing new markets, driving software product growth (current focus), building systems in marketing and customer success, and recruiting & training.

What I Value

๐Ÿ“š Enabling: learning potentials for adults or kids

๐Ÿ”จ Enabling: building products and productivity

โ€๐ŸŽฅ Enabling: expression through video

โ€โญ My life motto: "Comfort is the enemy of growth." It is even framed on my wall!

โ€๐Ÿ‘ I enjoy: Be humble & respect everyone, be transparent #BuildInPublic, develop people, focus on sustainable growth, and nurture a learning culture

โ€๐Ÿ‘Ž Not my cup of tea: Have too much ego, self-centered and short-sighted, and lack of teamplay

โ€๐ŸŒณ When I'm not building: you can find me spending time with my family, reading on Kindle, running or cycling outdoors, or looking at trees with calm music.

Weird About Me

๐Ÿ‘• I like to wear plain t-shirts or shirts to reduce decision fatigue.

๐Ÿฅ‘ I like chicken breast and the raw taste of food.

๐Ÿ  I like everything household, including cleaning dishes and tidying.
