Willis Wee, Co-Founder, Penn Olson
He also has experience in both traditional and digital advertising, much thanks to his mentors at DDB Singapore . He enjoys roller skating, coffee, late night outings, and just staring into blank space.
Company profile: Founded in July 2009, Penn Olson provides you with tech and business content focusing on Asia - China, India, Indonesian and Japan. Well, basically building a "TechCrunch" for Asia, promoting Asian technology .
Why Penn Olson? Starting the blog with just a few people was tough, so when we considered a name, we liked the idea of having some mythical partners to guide us on our journey. We created Penn-Olson, because blogging is essentially 'penning ones thoughts' and 'Olson' was a somewhat arbitrary addition, but it sounded (like) awesome.
