#Asia Learn Bootstrapping 101 at this month’s Founders Drinks Singapore


We are welcoming serial entrepreneur Jon Yongfook to the Founders Drinks community this November


Jon Yongfook is someone who knows and understands the true definition of what #startuplife really is – having founded/worked for/advised/mentored startups for the last 15 years. Come and learn from Yongfook’s experiences in the best practices in bootstrapping, hiring, equity, business models and more. Who knows, you may just get a clearer insight into your very own journey.

About the speaker

Jon Yongfook is a serial entrepreneur based currently in Singapore but is really a man of the world. He most recently founded Beatrix, a social media content marketing SaaS.

Previously, Yongfook was Director (Web) at Japanese e-commerce flash sales site Glamour Sales and International Product Director at Cookpad. Yongfook also launched Open Source Food in 2007, a recipe-sharing social network with an advertising-based revenue model which was acquired in 2009.

About the topic

In 2013, Yongfook built a software business while working from the beach, with no outside funding. The business grew over the next two years, and now he is using the profit from that software business to bootstrap a hardware business.
