Kelly Chan of Oushhh Technology Limited tells us about sports technology.
Tell us about you, your career, and how you founded Oushhh.
Kelly Chan: I’m a curious person about the world. Technology and eCommerce were starting to boom during my era after I graduated from a technology university. After my first job in my passion field of philanthropy, I was invited by a friend to start a group buying company. Opportunities opened doors for us, and we won the acquisition of Groupon US after 11 months of business when they wanted to expand into Asia. The rest was history, and I have invested my whole career life in the technology sector ever since. Being on different rocket ships like Groupon APAC, Lazada (Alibaba), Payoneer (Fintech), and Decathlon, I have learned from and been inspired by each and other entrepreneur spirits, and now it is my time for another start-up – Oushhh (Sportstech).

Who are your competitors? And how do you plan to stay in the game?
Kelly Chan: We share the same market for the sports and lifestyle technology market; however, instead of being direct competitors, we are able to partner with brands in this market without conflict of interest. This will only expand our user base to stay strong in the game!
Tell us a customer success story of yours.
Kelly Chan: With our highly customizable solutions to fit our customers’ needs, we have successfully won the tender of an NGO’s signature event for 2022. This has confirmed our strong positioning in the market, given they have previously engaged other providers in the long term. Our effort in market research and listening to clients enabled us to find our footing in this market, even though strong players are already in the market. Oushhh will continue to be the innovator in sports tech to inspire everyone to a sustainable, healthier lifestyle.
