About the Panellists

Bryce Chee

Business Analyst - Drawboard

Bryce was an International student from Singapore, who landed in lovely Victoria in 2016. He studied Bachelor of Business Information Systems at RMIT, and chose it as it was the best thing to study to become a founder himself. As much as running a successful start-up is still my dream, I spend most of my time working in them till I can (i.e. get PR). Currently at Drawboard as a Business Analyst.

Ask me anything about starting a business, finding a job in the start-up scene or visa woes.
