Eddie Ong’s bold bet on tech

“Just watch this company build something great in the tech space. We are going to be a true tech company and not one that is merely digitalising traditional businesses,” says Ong.

HAVING made a big entrance into the corporate scene in 2017, Datuk Eddie Ong Choo Meng has become a household name among some investors. With substantial stakes in at least 10 listed companies, Ong has certainly got tongues wagging about what his end game will be. He now tells StarBizWeek that his foray into the corporate world is far from over.

And his latest move is to put his efforts into attempting to build a tech giant.
