We believe collaboration is always better than competition. We are here to bring collaboration an efficiency to businesses online.
Kow, Roy and CY have known each other since their university education, served as peer mentors and they also initiated youth empowerment project together.
They found out that there are currently multi-platforms that need to be adopted to handle different needs in e-booking, e-commerce and community building. As engineers, they think that these processes can be optimized and more cost-efficient - inspiring them to leave their jobs and found GoBuddy in early 2019.
GoBuddy empowers people to easily create their online businesses taking care of online shops, activities and community building needs facilitated through e-commerce and e-booking tools.
