    • Management

Thomas is a young entrepreneur who is building a business that started as a desire to solve his personal problem as an employee in the post-pandemic world. Thomas' journey before starting up, consists of stacking up the relevant skills, beliefs and habits to be a successful entrepreneur. This includes making decisions for choosing the right undergrad course, then picking up the marketing, sales and technology skills to build a tech-led business. He sees himself as a business/product guy who knows how to write software applications end-to-end. To date, Thomas has done the engineering, sales, marketing, and support for his business - PerkUp. 

PerkUp drives employee engagement by allowing companies to issue pre-loaded Visa cards that the team can freely spend on entertainment, education, fitness, childcare, or office equipment.

Our conversation focused on understanding how Thomas made some critical decisions, what he could have done better in early career and how he built the relevant skills and habits. His journey and decision making is relevant for early stage entrepreneurs, solopreneurs, wannabe entrepreneurs and students who are about to make critical career decisions.
