The way ahead is long and has no ending,
yet high and low I’ll search with my will unbending.

In a world saturated with digital connectivity, anyone can be connected to anyone else, at any time, from anywhere. Map this to the multitude of market opportunities, from how a company buys or sells its products and services, to how it registers, queries or authorizes purchases. And take it even further, to how customers’ purchases and experiences could be shared with an audience of millions, at virtually no incremental cost. That’s seamlessness in transaction, administration and marketing.
We believe that it takes an entrepreneur to understand another entrepreneur, and thus we have many successful entrepreneurs in our network who are always ready to lend a hand. In addition, our affiliations with global partners provide inspiration and assistance in funding, mentoring and growing our portfolio companies.
James has been very genuine to help in any way possible and is quick to do so. Constantly challenges us to think bigger and serves as our go-to sounding board for fund raising and other operational matters. Humble and approachable too despite the immense success he’s had with 55tuan.Quek Siu RuiCo-Founder, Carousell
The best kind of investors are those who are entrepreneurs themselves, and James is one of the best in that category – he is authentic, supportive and knowledgable. He is both a great coach for founders, as well as a master tactician in execution, a combination that is rare and incredibly valuable to find in an investor.Darius CheungFounder & CEO, 99.co

We met James Tan when he was one of the judges during our first public pitch at Startup Asia. He could see the potential in Vibease when most people thought it was just a toy. Since then, he has been very supportive and provided us with real feedback. His insights and connections in the China and Singapore startup ecosystems definitely help us a lot. We are really glad to have him as our investor and mentor.Dema TioCEO, Vibease
We met Quest very early and even though we are in a niche sector, there is no doubt that their insights and connections have made everything easier for us. All the folks in Quest have been genuinely nice and helpful. Becoming part of Quest’s family is one of the best decisions we have made so far.
