Co-founder, JOYO

An active member on the startup scene, Rachel Cheung is the founder of JOYO. With the motto “own less, travel more,” the tech firm is all about encouraging Hong Kong travelers to share travel gear rather than purchase brand-new items.

“My job is to solve every problem that appears on a daily basis, and at the same time take the company to where it should be,” she explains.

“I like to binge-watch TED talk as entertainment.”

The Hongkonger attended university in the US before returning to Hong Kong. Aside from JOYO, she is also the chairman of the JCI Apex’s (Junior Chamber International) Corporate Clinic program, which focuses on transforming businesses into more innovative models with mentorship and pitching.

“New technology, business models and knowledge inspires me a lot,” shares Cheung. “I like to binge-watch TED talk as entertainment — learning new things makes me feel empowered.”

Her first job? “A part-time role at Ocean Park when I was 16. I was working as the food kiosk staff selling egg puffs and popcorn.”

Her motivation? “Knowing people would be influenced by what I have done motivates me to continue to do good.”
