|3:00 PM||Sharing Session / Talk by Nadhir Ashafiq (TheLorry)|
Nadhir Ashafiq is an entrepreneur from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. His love for entrepreneurship and finance began with an online pet website he got addicted to when he was 11 years old called Neopets. It was where he learned basic concepts of retail – how to buy inventories low and resell them at a profit as well as the fundamentals of the stock market.
That experience nurtured his love for finance that drove him to complete my Master’s degree in Economics & Finance and went on to work for CIMB Investment Bank. He later jumped to a logistics company for a higher position in a regional logistics company.
He has since left the company and co-founded TheLorry.com, a fast and easy way to book lorries, vans and 4×4 in Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Indonesia. It recently raised a US$1.5 million Series A round led by SPH Media Fund as well as moved into the e-commerce vertical, working with leading online vendors and retailers to deliver bulky items.
