Bobby Ong UCL GraduationMe on my graduation day

Hi, my name is Bobby Ong. I graduated one year ago with an Economics degree from University College London. I am a recipient of the ASEAN and Sime Darby Foundation scholarships. I am currently serving my scholarship bond with Sime Darby Property in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia working on digital marketing and analytics. Link to my LinkedIn profile.

I enjoy entrepreneurship and believe this is my path for me although I have failed a few times in setting up a business. I have sold miscellaneous products over the years since school such as t-shirts, advertising, food delivery services, self-storage solutions and shipping solutions.

I am big believer in the power of Internet and taught myself programming since my final year of university. I now consider myself a developer with sufficient ability to set up a website in Django or Ruby on Rails given sufficient time.

On this blog, I share my thoughts about entrepreneurship, life and happiness. I am available for guest blogging or speaking engagement opportunities. Drop me an email anytime at or a tweet at @bobbyong. I would love to hear from you.

An interesting fact about myself:

I was admitted into University of California, Berkeley but could not find the funds to study there and set up a website – (inactive) – to raise funds to study there. The website was written about by a local English daily (image). I stopped fundraising activities after receiving a scholarship from Sime Darby Foundation to study in University College London.
