HongZhuang Lim is a serial entrepreneur and the Chief Executive Officer for XSQ Pte Ltd. He has spent over 10 years in the food and agriculture industry building businesses from bottom up in diverse environments especially in South East Asia. Zhuang brings about fresh perspectives as the “odd guy” in the deal as his foundation years in business was in totally unrelated fields. He leads investments from a very pragmatic and realist angle that the technology should be applicable and have a strong impact in everyday lives.
Zhuang from XSQ Singapore is someone I have spent a significant amount of time while we were putting together www.decentralize.sg. While we were focussed on bringing in top quality industry experts, without XSQ’s local community efforts De/Centralize would not have turned out the way it did. We also worked closely on www.108token.com and Z had some amazing insights into the process.
