Marcus Tan, 34
Co-founder of consumer marketplace app Carousell
I want to inspire more people to use technology to solve problems. When we first started, online buying and selling mostly took place on internet forums and message boards. So we built an app that leveraged the features of the smartphone. Anyone can snap a photo, list an item and sell it all in one place. It’s our goal to build an enduring company that empowers people to sell and buy online. Whether the app is used to declutter lives or make some side income, it’s a seamless and safe experience everyone can use.
