EP 07 – Chia Jeng Yang – Fintech Angel Operators – Southeast Asia’s First Fintech Angel Group

Chia Jeng Yang is the Co-Founder of Fintech Angel Operators, Southeast Asia’s first fintech angel group, and a Principal at Saison Capital, the VC arm of Credit Saison, one of Japan’s largest consumer credit companies.


Chia started his career as a firefighter and did a hard pivot from policy-making work to building an eCommerce company with Rocket Internet in South Asia because it seemed way more fun. He later found his way to venture to invest at Antler and Saison Capital where he led investments in notable companies, such as Koinworks, Oy, Bukukas, and Ula, to name a few.


Realizing that the future belongs to founders and operators, he co-founded Fintech Angel Operators to provide operational advice and network for fintech founders in Southeast Asia.

We covered all about Southeast Asia’s fintech trends here at #AsianFintechPodcast.
