Huan Kiat founded CoAssets, a successful investment crowdfunding platform. He enjoys the ‘newness’ of the market he is pioneering and all the opportunities for innovation it represents.

What’s your story?
I founded CoAssets, an investment crowdfunding platform, together with Getty Goh. I came back from the United States in 2011 and met up with Getty to understand the real estate market in Singapore better. I was actually looking for an investment and he ran a real estate consultancy. During that meeting, we realised that many people in Singapore are shut out from investing in properties because the initial sum needed is simply too high. Both of us immediately recognised the market needs and started working on CoAssets – and the platform has since expanded to business crowdfunding as well.

What excites you most about your industry?
We are one of the pioneering debt crowdfunding platforms in the region and we are fortunate to be in a still-evolving industry that presents new opportunities to innovate all the time. For example, we are very focussed on data collection and data analytics, which we think is our key technical competitive advantage compared to our peers and makes us scaleable as it reduces the time to have effective crowdfunding campaigns in our newer offices in different regions. Lastly we love that we are disrupting how businesses are funded by providing alternatives which are well-received by the business owners.
