As a venture capitalist, focusing on the Internet and mobile sectors, Jixun Foo is interested in anything that disrupts and as such, he is keeping an eagle eye on mobile.
A managing partner with GGV Capital based in Shanghai, the Singapore-born-and-educated Foo is also particularly interested in travel due to the size and complexity of the industry which lends itself well to disruption.
Foo, who will join the panel of judges for the WIT Start-Up Pitch 2013, powered by Abacus Ventures, said “mobile first” models were particularly interesting because consumer behaviour was changing so fast with mobile devices.
As part of his personal mission to nurture entrepreneurship and innovation in Singapore, he’s part of a team of angel investors that looks to help start-ups find their feet. He’s on the board of Flocations, for instance, the marketplace for tour packages.
