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 knowledgeable. 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.

Quest has a deep understanding of female issues and big data. It’s awesome that they were with us through both the good and bad times. I can always count on them to be available.

The folks at Quest are always approachable and ready to offer innovative and fresh perspectives to tackle problems. Frequent sharing sessions by seasoned entrepreneurs who have ‘been there, done that’ have helped us gain new insights on growing and managing our business. Oddle.me has definitely seen farther by standing on the shoulders of Quest.

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.

We met James very early when we started. There is no doubt that his insights and connections made everything easier for us. Not only James but all of the folks in Quest have been genuinely nice and helpful to us. I think becoming part of the Quest family is one of the best decision we have made so far.

Quest could see the potential in Vibease when most people thought it was just a toy. Since then, they have been very supportive and provided us with real feedback. Their insights and connections in the China and Singapore startup ecosystems definitely help us a lot.
