More on the speakers:
Jack Soh, Cofounder of Kalpha
After finishing his schooling, Singapore-born Jack Soh enrolled in the University of Melbourne for a Bachelor’s Degree in Commerce. During his stay, he opened a Chinese restaurant where he got an opportunity to meet numerous mentors by chance, and they shared valuable knowledge with him to manage his business better. Unfortunately, he had to sell the restaurant two years later and return to Singapore as his visa expired.
Back home, he was thinking about his meetings with different mentors at his Melbourne restaurant, and this sparked a business idea in him. Founded in 2018 by Soh and his college mate Jaden Teo, Kalpha is a mobile app that enables individuals to discover, connect and meet up to learn and share skills, experiences, and knowledge on a 1-to-1 basis. The app was launched in January 2019.
