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.

Kevon is talking about his journey as a startup founder.
Ever since discovering writing, Kevon has been spending more time reflecting his life and writing down thoughts to share with others.

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 designing product marketing, driving product growth, and building systems and workflows.

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.

Kevon believes that there is only one way to find happiness: by finding your own way to fulfillment.
Kevon enjoys sharing his transparent way of running companies and teams.

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.
