Douglas is an investor and serial entrepreneur (for real). He co-founded several internet businesses, including the extremely successful Qunar.com, which Baidu acquired a major stake (306mi USD) in 2011. The company has been listed in Nasdaq (QUNR) and remains as one of the main “go-to-websites” for travelers in China.
Douglas began his professional career in an advertising agency named Ogilvy & Mather, in Malaysia. His career took him to Indonesia, Beijing (where her run the MindShare) and Hong Kong, where he run the whole digital arm of Mindshare across Asia Pacific.
Besides Qunar.com, he co-founded several internet companies, the first being Shawei.com, a sports portal, which was sold to Lee Ka-Shing controlled Tom.com in 2000.
As a fun note, it’s said that he currently spends most of his time travelling, piloting planes, racing classical cars and photography.
He is also investing his time to mentor start-ups and starting new initiatives that aim to support the local startup ecosystem.
