Entrepreneur / Managing Director
Entrepreneur and Managing Director of homegrown aromatherapy brand Mt. Sapola, Cheryl Gan carved her own career fuelled by her passion for essential oils, after years of working as a former civil servant. Having accumulated certifications in herbal medicine, anatomy, physiology, and holistic healing, Cheryl is also a therapist, a certified trainer, and an international distributor. In addition, Cheryl is a member of the CRIB Women for Women Initiative, which is Singapore’s first business and lifestyle incubator specially founded to empower women.
As the founder of an eco-friendly and all-natural homegrown chain, the successful mother of four believes in only using the finest botanical ingredients in her products, thus promoting a holistic therapy to enhance overall well-being for today’s multitasking individuals. Mt. Sapola develops and produces their own line of beauty and aromatherapy products locally and has gained a huge cult following all over the world.
Whenever it is possible, Cheryl also conscientiously offers jobs and a conducive environment to older women to help those in need of earning a wage, or to keep them active in their advanced age. She also founded 365 days (home scent label), and Barn & Potter Holdings (production and manufacturing company).
Gina Heng is the co-founder and CEO of Marvelstone Group, a private investment group headquartered in Singapore. The Group believes in the growth of Asia and seeks to be a cornerstone investor to bring forth positive development and social impact.
An entrepreneur at heart, Gina launched MissKaya.com – a women-focused robo-advisory financial services platform. The venture is aimed at serving the financial needs of modern women in Asia.
Prior to founding Marvelstone Group, she was a venture partner at Yozma Ventures (Korea) and co-founded asset management firms, One Asia Investment Partners and Leonie Hill Capital in Singapore.
Gina previously worked at Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi and Cerulli Associates, where she covered sectors such as asset management, telecommunications, commodities and infrastructure, in Southeast Asia, China, India and Australia.
She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science and Economics from the University of Pennsylvania. She is fluent in English, Mandarin and Teochew (Chinese dialect)
Louisa Lee is a serial entrepreneur whose passion for learning and teaching has led her to where she is today. She read English, Literature and Philosophy at the National University of Singapore, graduating with an Honors (Second Upp) in English. She then pursued a Masters in Linguistics from UCL and became an educator after that in a top girls’ school in Singapore. She started and has since sold two other businesses while joining her husband Dr Yue Weng Cheu to purchase and run DP Dental in 2006.
What started as a small practice with one dental chair, grew to a four chair practice in one year and by November 2007, the practice crossed a million dollars in revenue. DP Dental has since grown to a six-chair practice with a team of close to 30 people in 10 years. Together, they have created a unique, fully-integrated, boutique practice, complete with some of the most progressive equipment and knowledge in dentistry. They serve clients who fly in from all over the world to experience this integrative and functional approach to healthcare.
As the Managing Director of DP Dental, Louisa strongly believes in honest dentistry with a heart and that businesses should run accordingly. The Mandarin name for the practice 诚芯牙科, translates this perfectly. Strong ethics and values shape and define her personality and work culture as the practice only hires those who have a great attitude and an open mind for learning. Louisa travels the world with her husband seeking more knowledge on cutting-edge procedures and equipment as well as ways to remain completely modern and progressive in Singapore.
She and Dr Yue are adamant that they are the early adopters in technology, be it through machinery or practice. This applies to management ideologies too. She believes that being a congruent entrepreneur is the key and hence they are progressive in all aspects of the business. In addition to technology, Louisa’s other main focus is building a holistic practice similar to Functional Medicine or Traditional Chinese Medicine, where the root cause is looked at, rather than just at the areas where the signs and symptoms surface.
She is currently also Director of Dental ED South East Asia, providing cutting-edge, high quality education for dentists in the region. She recently founded Progressive Practice. She believes in congruent leadership rooted in strong core values, and apart from being a speaker, coach and consultant, she is also an author. Her book “Progressive Practice: Disrupt yourself before others do” will be launched in 2017, and is an amalgamation of her expertise in healthcare management with her passion in education. She is an active thought leader and change advocate in the areas of reforming Healthcare and Education.
A strong supporter of philanthropy and CSR, she sits on the advisory board of Imagine Cambodia Foundation to raise funds for the home housing orphans or children from disadvantaged background. DP Dental has also been working in close partnership with B1G1 since 2010 as she firmly believes that every business she is involved in has to be a business involved also in the Business of Giving.
