It all started when our founders Will and Fei decided to conquer their own quarter life crisis and ended up finding a way to help others overcome theirs. They left their corporate jobs and moved to Singapore to start QLC.io. With a growing team of 10 we want to share a bit about us and who we are. We’re all millennials like you. We’ve studied in 4 continents, worked in 8 countries and travelled across over 200 cities. From digital, consulting, gap year, retail, research, training, IT, startups, entrepreneurship, education, fashion to non-profits…We know it’s hard to find the next thing, so we’re committed to making it easy.
Get to know our Co-Founder Will Fan, the other half of QLC.io. He grew up in Sydney and has a background in law. Besides running and selling the QLC.io dream, he sometimes starts side projects such as Trainers of Pokemon Go. The QLC.io team are off to the 2016 Web Summit in Lisbon really soon (November 7–10). Will is going to be presenting in the PITCH shortlist selected from over 1000 startups.
