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!
