From inspiration
to execution

Venture building | Venture investments | Innovation | Transformation



My name is Johny Tay and welcome to my simple space.

"Innovation" and "new ventures" sound scary, but they shouldn't be.

As individuals, we innovate everyday without realizing it,

so this should also be second nature for our organizations!

I dedicate myself to making these things attainable and understandable... for you.
