Adventure Engineers Scatter This Weekend

Our team has been full on the past few months so a few of them took this weekend to see the sights around the region. The timing was was a coincident, but we have PayrollHero #AdventureEngineers in 7 cities around the world today. They are in Hong Kong, Shenyang China, Whistler Canada, Singapore, Manila Philippines, Cebu Philippines and Squamish Canada. Below are a few pictures from their adventures.

Nico Suria is in Hong Kong along with Kieran Peppiatt and their girlfriends seeing the sights, doing a little shopping and taking in some of the local culture.

Hong Kong “Fireside Chat” with GrabTaxi and PayrollHero

Myself and the CEO of GrabTaxi, Anthony Tan, were invited by TechinAsia to participate in a “fireside chat” in Hong Kong yesterday at the Paperclip co-working space in Sheung Wan to talk about startups, Asia, growth and the startup environment in Southeast Asia.

It was a fun event with the questions focused on each of us for about 20 minutes and then open floor questions to the guests. The Hong Kong startup culture looks to be thriving, with 100+ people in attendance from all over the world.

For my part, I talked about how we came to the Philippines in the first place ( and how PayrollHero was born. We talked about the challenges of selling into Southeast Asia, what industries our platform is focused on and where we are going next.

There will be a video recap of the event that I will post as soon as it is available.
