Germaine leads the operations team in managing the day-to-day operations at Impact Hub Singapore. She also manages the Hub Ventures Fund, an early-stage investment fund set up to invest in high potential pre-seed to seed stage companies.
Germaine started out at Impact Hub Singapore as the Portfolio Manager of Incubation Programs - PACT Incubator and The Startup Lab where she aims to grow social enterprises into investment-ready companies that can create broad and deep impact.
Prior to Impact Hub Singapore, Germaine worked at Expara, an early-stage venture capital fund. In her two years at Expara, she advised startups in different fields including fashion, big data, machine learning, medical device, virtual reality, ecommerce, and more. She is very well-connected to the Thai startup scene and was a part of the setup of a local accelerator program in Thailand. Germaine also headed the CzechAccelerator Programme in Singapore, mentoring startups from the Czech Republic who are interested to expand to Asia.
As someone who is very interested in social entrepreneurship and impact investment, she wrote her thesis on impact investment when the scene in Singapore was still very nascent.
