From a humble background, Ken had the passion to train but did not have the initial capital to start the business. He preserved and succeeded in raising the initial investment of $50,000 from SPRING Singapore and Singapore Management University (SMU) after receiving good feedback from his initial clients. Since then, Ken has appeared on various media such as The Business Times and The Straits Times to advocate training empowerment and invited as an expert for talk shows on News Radio 938 and Channel 8. He won the 2009 Global TIC Award and nominated for 2008 Global Young Entrepreneur Award.
Wanting to inspire youth on entrepreneurship, Ken authored a book called The 3rd Little Pig during the 2008 Global Financial Crisis and featured 8 of the most successful young entrepreneurs in Singapore under 30 years old. In 2013, with a global team of entrepreneurs, Ken co-founded a non-profit organisation called T Foundation to alleviate poverty by training through a Train1Gift1 Concept where trainers/entrepreneurs/volunteers pledge their time. For every participant they train professionally, they will train another person in a developing country for free. The goal is to help 1,000,000 people improve their lives through training and support the United Nations Millennium Development Goal of eradicating extreme poverty and hunger.
