About Kenneth Ho

I lead BEAMSTART, an entrepreneurial platform that helps introduce people to potential clients, career opportunities, and partners/investors.

Am passionate about technological innovation, entrepreneurial leadership, and investments. Previously founded and sold 2 companies in the education and machine learning space.

Today I spend my time expanding BEAMSTART with the focus on helping entrepreneurs tap into valuable networks, financing, and market access. I believe that entrepreneurs are crucial to the progress of our world, and bridging them to the relevant resources and support could go a really long way.

I’m also a small scale angel investor who has invested in 7 side ventures ranging from news/media, esports/gaming, and SaaS. We'll be launching our VC fund soon to invest into accelerator stage companies real soon!

Let’s connect and explore the value we can bring together!

Happy to help anyone who needs help with fundraising / marketing / launching software products.
