AVPN Global Conference 2023 | 20 - 22 June 2023

Woo Ying Yan
Vice President


DBS Foundation


For past decade, I've built up a rich experience of working closely with start-ups, venture capitalists, mentors and incubators, managing some 500 portfolio start-ups. Seized opportunities to collaborate with various stakeholders to contribute to the building of a vibrant start-up environment in Singapore. Instrumental in seeding co-innovation projects and implementation of various grant and capacity-building programmes to nurture start-ups in Singapore and the region. Gets my high from helping "willing and able" entrepreneurs bring their ideas to reality and move to creating their destiny. Ain't a mountaineer but have already scaled the highest peaks in Taiwan, Malaysia, and of course, Singapore.
