FOUNDER & CEO
Krish believes business should be learnt through action rather than theory. He quit his MSc concurrent degree to gain real life business experience. He threw himself in various aspects of business roles early in his University life and enjoyed sales the most. After losing a good friend to leukaemia and experiencing the problems of the medical industry himself, he became motivated to make a difference in the industry.
He believes in giving back to society, and thus started a community project that teaches conversational English and basic IT skill to students in the post-conflict region of Sri Lanka. In his spare time, he enjoys photography, travelling and diving.
FOUNDER & CTO
Nishanth is a Computer Engineering graduate from National University of Singapore on full scholarship. Working in start-ups and freelance projects for the past 7 years gave him an edge in software development on both web and mobile platforms.
To top it all off, his avid interest in Mathematics and Finance saw to his minor in Financial Mathematics and his completion of Level 1 of the CFA charter. He also has a keen interest in Indian Classical Music, and has performed as the lead percussionist in multiple concerts at the University.
NIK VAN DER PLOEG
Nik is an American psychology graduate from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He’s been doing freelance and full-time web development for the last 8 years, the last three of which were spent in China and Taiwan where he learned Mandarin and studied a Master’s degree in linguistics.
He got involved in the start-up scene after moving to Singapore to work on a start-up that teaches Chinese to foreigners in a novel way. He met the Klinify team during the second batch of JFDI Asia's accelerator program and officially joined Klinify soon after.
Kien is an Information Technology graduate from the University of Western Australia. Having grown up in the east coast of Malaysia, his exposure to the prevalent ecotourism of the area sparked off an interest in travel. He has since lived in Perth and San Francisco. With more than 8 years of experience in various technological platforms, Klinify has fortunately managed to entice him into extending his stay in Singapore.
Klinify’s rapid progress in the short time since Kien’s arrival is a testament to his skill and proficiency as an IT enthusiast. Being a food buff, he also enhances the team’s lunch hours; since moving to the new location, the Klinify team has yet to have lunch at one place twice. Kien dreams of one day migrating to a foreign country where the language and people perplex him.
Adam has a Diploma in Game Design and Development from Singapore Polytechnic, where he was thrown into the deep end and told to code a 3D game in his final year. Equipped with some basic technical knowledge, he then worked as a freelance web developer.
A year and a half spent in administrative human resources in the Army instilled in him a healthy respect for proper UI/UX, which comes in useful in his interaction between the product development team and the customer research department. Adam listens to far too much dubstep and has an arguably unhealthy obsession with historical fiction.
Haikal is an Industrial Design graduate from the National University of Singapore. He describes himself as a designer who believes in the less is more ideology, hoping to design his way into a clutter-free world, and now, to create a magical user experience for doctors through Klinify.
In his free time, Haikal enjoys meddling with the guitar, munching on white chocolates and sipping coffee. Being a travel buff has certainly shaped Haikal’s style as well; besides travelling extensively in Europe, he also backpacked for two months solely within China, and spent two months in an overland trip starting from South China, and worked his way back to Singapore through Southeast Asia.
LIP YEOW (LIPPY) LEE
BACKEND AND SECURITY ARCHITECT
Lip Yeow is an Accountancy and Business Management graduate from Singapore Management University. He has been a nut for technology since he was first introduced to his first computer at the tender age of 4 and in the years since has been involved in several opensource projects and freelance hardware installations. His other interests include music, art, and design and claims that his one life goal is to become a polymath worthy of the great renaissance men.
His brief stint optimizing cross-border tax exposure for corporations before joining Klinify has given him greater appreciation of navigating arcane policies and documentation, a skill he puts to great use as our backend and security guy.
Luke has a Master's Degree in Information Technology from the University of Queensland. Prior to that he was involved in the education industry, spending 5 years in China working as an English teacher while picking up Mandarin and a love of spicy food on the side.
When not doing web development, Luke’s time is usually taken up with something music related; whether it be playing guitar, writing about the newest releases, or just relaxing and listening to something good. His other interests include history, politics, philosophy, and grand strategy games.
