His Daughter as His Career Inspiration
He graduated from Cambridge University, was a lawyer in Hong Kong, once wrotea song for Aaron Kwok, and was a senior executive for the renown venture capital firm, SoftBank. KL Wong, with all his stellar achievements, is now bidding the past farewell to become the founder and CEO of Hello Pal, based in Hangzhou. This transformation began with the birth of hisdaughter. In the eyes of his friends, Wong is a “Super Dad” forhis daughter, and it was precisely her arrival thatbrought him onto today’s career path.
Creating an App for Early Education
After his daughter was born, KL Wong bought nearly all the early education products on the market, but discovered that none of them were good enough. In order to give his daughter the best kind of personalized early education, Wong found computer programmers online to help him code, and from there he createdhis own early education methods and software. Years later, Wong established his first start-up in Hong Kong and this was the company’s first flagship product.
The Near, and the Far
All along, KL Wong has constantly been searching for a career that he truly wanted to pursue, a career that would be meaningful to the world. Developing Hello Pal has been the most interesting thing Wong has worked on. He hopes that Hello Pal will allow different people from all over the world to better understand thosefrom elsewhere, so that this global village of ours can communicate without barriers.
As someone who grew up in a multicultural environment, Wong believes that many problems between people with cultural differences usually come from a lack of mutual understanding. Hello Pal greatly removes the communication barriers between people who speak different languages, allowing them to share knowledge in a mutually-workable language environment.
