Edward Chen

Co-Founder at oBike


A go-getter with entrepreneurial aspirations, Edward started dabbling in startups after he graduated from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, with a major in the Internet of Things and Communication. With a keen interest in the sharing economy and technology, his initial startups centred around these ideas. In 2016, the green advocate in him jumped on the opportunity to start a bike-sharing service in Singapore in a bid to reduce traffic congestion and carbon emission. As such, he co-founded oBike with a few like-minded entrepreneurs, leveraging on technology to provide an alternative short-distance commute option to urbanites. Today, oBike is the leading bike-sharing company in Singapore and the biggest in Southeast Asia. Within a short span of eight months, oBike has expanded globally to 13 different countries.
