Ken Chee
CEO, 8 Investments Pte Ltd

Ken Chee started his very first business, a branding and marketing agency, with only $9 in 2002. In 18 months, he generated over $1.4 million in revenue and now counts key brands such as Panasonic, Lexus, Toyota, Hugo BOSS, DBS Bank, Singapore Pools, Seraya Energy and ST Electronics among his clientele.

In recognition of his entrepreneurial efforts, Ken was the recipient of the Spirit of Enterprise Award in 2005. Out of over 140,000 small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) in Singapore, only the top 40 SMEs are awarded this prestigious honor annually.

In 2008, Ken did it again — he started another company with NO money down and turned it into $3.5 million in just 20 months.

Once may be a fluke, but twice is no joke. If you’re looking for someone who knows how to create something out of nothing and grow into a million dollars or more, then you have to touch shoulders with this master entrepreneur.
