Linda Ang is the founder of 2BITE Consulting. She also holds a Director position in 3 Start-ups. Having lived in various cities in Asia and Europe the last 10+ years, she is in tune with different corporate practices around the world and deeply passionate about global economies.
The earlier years of Linda’s career were dedicated to Investor Relations, Equity Capital Markets and Corporate Finance, which enabled her to understand the workings of both the buy and sell sides. These experiences also granted her familiarity with both corporate developments and the dynamics of financial markets. Today, Investor Relations programs are like extensions of her personality – she is focused on and passionate about creating more synergies between companies and the investment community.
In recent years, Linda has consulted several companies on their business expansions in Asia, be they developing or advanced economies. She does not consult just by giving advice about a project at length; she is unafraid of getting her hands dirty and would personally do the groundwork in whichever country/ city necessary, to ensure that the clients’ business development plans are on the right track.
She is also a firm believer that Strategic Partnerships are the keys to successful business development in today’s economic environment and works closely with clients to administer the necessary strategies.
