Christopher Fong, Founder and Investor, Xoogler.co
Christopher Fong has invested in over 40 startups during the past 4 years in the US, Mexico, Europe, India and Australia. His 8+ years at Google, which included his final role focusing on partnering with top venture capital firms and startups, prepared him to start and run Xoogler.co, Google's alumni community to support ex-Google founders. It's grown to over 8,000 members and 1,200 investors with over 200 events held globally. Since COVID-19, Chris has held events with speakers from Y Combinator, 500 Startups and Sequoia Capital on remote best practices for early-stage entrepreneurs. He's seen Xoogler startups such as Zynq pivot their workplace productivity offerings to launch products to cater to remote workers and safely return back to work - while other startups adjust to the new normal of closing their fundraising rounds via video conference calls. Like many others during these times, he's been helping his family transition their physical business to offer their products online. Their Singapore math classes which are now delivered online were recently covered on CNBC.
