Francesca Chia – CEO and co-founder of GoGet 

As explained on the Jay Kim Show, the idea of GoGet was once just coffee-talk amongst friends but eventually turned into a burning passion of CEO and co-founder Francesca Chia.

She made it her mission to empower people by providing work opportunities to people who typically wouldn’t be able to get a job like stay-at-home mums who are only available for a one or two-hour task.

If you aren’t familiar with the platform, GoGet is a platform for on-demand part-time help. From getting part-time dispatchers and promoters, to warehouse assistants and more, GoGet helps businesses scale up operations with an on-demand workforce.

How inspiring are these individuals?!

If you’re interested in meeting them then be sure you don’t miss out on attending Drinkentrepreneurs Malaysia! 

Happening on the 14th of November 2019 in Kyo at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Drinkentrepreneurs Malaysia is the largest start-up party in KL.
