A Few Words: Insightful investor and serial start-upper Hugh sees digital transformation and innovation opportunities everywhere.
A self-described ‘failed medical student’ with a penchant for code, he eschewed the world of medicine for a life as an entrepreneur. He’s built a consulting business, become a renowned start-up investor, and build Insta management platform Sked from a spare-bedroom side project into a $multi-million international business.
Along the way, he has worked with a dizzying array of big-name brands and became one of SmartCompany’s ‘Hot 30 under 30’ entrepreneurs (two years running). He has also been listed in the Forbes 30 Under 30 Asia.
