CO-FOUNDER AND CHIEF FI­NAN­CIAL OF­FI­CER OF FUNDNEL, 30

Chua be­lieves that fi­nance is never about money alone, and you best be­lieve her: She’s worked for J.P. Mor­gan, CIMB-GK Se­cu­ri­ties and Citibank. In 2015, she co-founded pri­vate in­vest­ment plat­form, Fundnel, which fa­cil­i­tated US$49 mil­lion of fundrais­ing across 15 busi­ness deals in the re­gion—in 2016 alone. The first fin­tech com­pany in Sin­ga­pore to tackle pri­vate in­vest­ments, the plat­form con­nects in­vestors to com­pa­nies who are of­ten over­looked by in­sti­tu­tional in­vestors at their fundrais­ing/pre-IPO stage. As CFO, her em­pha­sis is on pro­vid­ing com­pa­nies with more mod­ern fi­nan­cial so­lu­tions.
