Debbie Soon - Intersection of Web 3.0 & Health
This episode's guest is Debbie Soon who joins us to speak about the intersection of web3 and healthcare, as a founder in both sectors. Debbie has spent her career both investing in and building multimillion dollar consumer businesses, and is now co-founder of HUG alongside Randi Zuckerberg. HUG is a Web3 platform that supports creators and collectors through its community and growth initiatives, for example through a curate-to-earn discovery platform for NFTs. We discuss consumer health, the potential of owning our own healthcare records and also the importance of having family medical history on the blockchain.
Prior to Web3, Debbie was an equity investor where she managed over $1 billion of global consumer sector investments for one of the largest sovereign wealth funds in the world, GIC. She then pivoted into the world of startups where she founded Singapore and Southeast Asia’s first boutique indoor cycling studio before going on to build three businesses from scratch for one of the most successful unicorns in Southeast Asia, Sequoia Capital-backed ONE Championship. Debbie’s experience spans consumer tech, ecommerce, and gaming, and she is excited to bring her wealth of startup experience to breaking down barriers for equitable representation in Web3.
Debbie graduated from the University of Cambridge with a degree in Economics and from Columbia University with a Masters in Financial Engineering.
