At 14, while his classmates were hanging out in the malls and playing video games in the arcades after school, Kevin Foong would rush home to edit photos on Photoshop and practise HTML editing on his computer.
Armed with these skills, he took on freelance web design projects.
Meanwhile, in school, he was selling stationeries to his classmates.
It wasn’t hard to see where he had caught the entrepreneurship bug from.
His father owned a thriving tailor shop at Lucky Plaza, and the young Kevin would follow him around and see “how he ran the business and entertained different customers.”
“My dad always taught me to find ways to earn money aside from working for others,” he recalls.
It was a lesson that would drive Kevin’s life just three years later.
Making Ends Meet
In 1997, at the height of the Asian financial crisis, his father’s shop closed. To make matters worse, his father developed health complications, which made him unable to work.
Kevin became the breadwinner of his family.
He immediately left Anglo-Chinese Junior College (ACJC) for the Institute of Technical Education (ITE) because he had “a good idea of what (he) wanted to do back then.”
At the same time, he was working part-time for Singtel and CyberWay (now Starhub).
He scrimped and saved enough to put himself through an advanced diploma course in infocomm at Singapore Polytechnic.
But the lesson that his father had taught him – and his dreams to run his very own business one day – never escaped him.
A Journey With Bazi
So in 1999, Kevin started web hosting firm SG.GS (renamed HostSG in 2010) with a friend. He was 19 years old then.
A series of ‘well-judged moves’ grew the company to its current position as Singapore’s largest web hosting solution provider serving over 200,000 users.
Despite his commitments, Kevin found time to dabble in Bazi, or what many refer to as ‘Eight Characters’ in Chinese.
Bazi is an ancient method – whose origins can be traced back to some 5,000 years ago – used to predict the outcome of your destiny.
Your characters, based on the five elements of wood, fire, earth, metal and water, are derived from your birth numbers: the year, the month, the day, right down to the hour you’re born in!
He began taking Bazi seriously in 2005, going for classes that would eventually turn him into a Bazi practitioner.
“Bazi has always been a key interest for me.
“When everything came falling down … I was pushing for a lot of answers. I started to ask ‘Is there really a method in which we can kind of know the future?’”
True enough, his Bazi revealed his passion for technology and his eye for business.
Playing to his strengths, he could create success in life.
He combined his love for technology and his business acumen to further great effect in 2007 when he set up Quest Venture Technologies (now Keytech Group), an IT support company, with a friend.
For his efforts, Kevin won the Spirit of Enterprise Awards in 2010 and the Asia Pacific Brands Award in 2014 among many other accolades.
He has invested close to $100,000 into an online platform that connects property buyers with sellers and agents. This investment is worth $300,000 today.
He aims to retire by 45, but reckons he may not be able to.
His ability to use Bazi to guide aspiring entrepreneurs and investors onto the most suitable path to success means many business owners and investors “still approach (him) for advice after they have succeeded.”
