Universal Laws I Wish Someone had Told Me: James Chua
This week on cita cita, we talk to James Chua, co-founder of MetroResidences, a web and mobile platform connecting businesses to serviced residences in Singapore.
James shares the three universal laws he wished someone had told him earlier in his career and also how he kept faith in the early days of entrepreneurship when there was no web traffic, no sales and no salary.
James co-founded MetroResidences in 2014 and is responsible for sales at the
company, a web and mobile platform connecting businesses to serviced residences in Singapore. In the span of three years, MetroResidences has grown to 400 apartments island-wide and works with over 1,000 corporate clients. Prior to launching MetroResidences, James co-founded PandaBed.com in 2012, a pan Asian home-sharing platform with over 20,000 listings.
He spent seven years working at Phillip Capital’s fund management unit studying businesses and managing portfolios as an equity analyst. He started his first entrepreneurial venture at the age of 7 buying and selling Marvel comics.
James has a Bachelor of Arts in economics from the University of California San Diego.
