The fintech accelerator Startupbootcamp FinTech Singapore has appointed Steven Tong as a new managing director. Tong, formerly of Infocomm Investments and the London-based accelerator, also welcomed three new team members from PwC Singapore, Pix Vine Capital and Jungle Ventures. Tong brings 15 years’ worth of experience working with financial technology companies in Singapore and the US. He was instrumental in funding several accelerator programs when employed at Infocomm Investments, including JFDI and the original Startupbootcamp FinTech in London.
“Having worked with startups across the US and Asia over the last ten years, I am extremely excited to be joining what, I believe, is the best FinTech accelerator in the region,” said Tong. “I am looking forward to working with the three new partners coming on board, PwC Singapore, Jungle Ventures and Pix Vine Capital, who will play a crucial role in helping the 10 startups in this year’s programme scale regionally.”
