Starting his career as a visual designer for architectural firm VMW, Kenneth moved to head operations in leading smartphone app company Nubee, where he was part of the team that raised US$13 million in venture capital from JAFCO. His first title as Producer/Director with Nubee was a critical and commercial success, earning millions of downloads and revenue along with numerous industry awards.
As a Director of DeNA Asia Pacific, the APAC headquarters for DeNA Co Ltd, Kenneth directed talented teams across Australia, Japan, Taiwan and Indonesia in the creation of original titles. One of these endeavours exposed him to live streaming, already a booming trend in China, Korea and Japan. Together with co-founder Kim Hui, he decided to bring live streaming to Southeast Asia.
He co-founded BeLive — a start-up focusing on video live streaming with the aim of bringing it to the forefront of next-generation social media in the region.
BeLive recently closed a US$1.5 million seed round, with Singapore’s terrestrial broadcaster Mediacorp participating.
