Jay Kim: Episode with Khailee Ng of 500 Startups SEA
An episode with Khailee Ng:
Khailee NG sold his first company to Groupon only five months after its founding and his second to one of Malaysia’s largest media companies two years later.
Khailee began angel investing and left Malaysia to pursue his dream of breaking into the Silicon Valley startup ecosystem soon after. Through his connections at the U.S. Embassy in Malaysia and a whole lot of hustle, Khailee landed a meeting with Dave McClure, co-founder of 500 Startups and one of Silicon Valley’s most well-known venture capitalists.
Today, Khailee heads 500 Startups Southeast Asia division and champions the idea that any startup with potential, whether in Silicon Valley or Kuala Lumpur, should have the tools and resources needed to succeed.
