KHO HAN JIA, 27
Co-Founder, Worthy Media Sdn Bhd
Three years ago, Kho Han Jia gave up a promising career in investment banking to pursue his own business venture. Armed with little knowledge and virtually zero experience, Kho created Worthy Book—a voucher booklet offering freebies, discounts and deals from multiple merchants in Malaysia—which he now runs with his brother. As the publications gain popularity among a rapidly growing fan base, Kho finds the risk that he took at the beginning was entirely worthwhile.
