A seasoned entrepreneur with a background in computers and electronics, G-Jay Yong kickstarted his entrepreneurial journey back in his university days. He founded a hardware company Gajah International as a student, eventually growing it to gross over $80M in annual revenue, inventing new products like the InkCase for iPhone, InkCase Health, and the Fridge Memo. Managing a team of over 197 employees in ODM/OEM and overcoming unexpected roadblocks early on in the growth stage, the experience allowed G-Jay to create myFirst, which was inspired by his daughter.
G-Jay graduated from the National University of Singapore studying Electrical and Computer Engineering. He also speaks and works in English, Mandarin, and Cantonese.
