Co-founder and CEO, YouTrip
For building Southeast Asia’s first multicurrency mobile wallet
Constant travel expenses when she worked at Citibank drove Caecilia Chu to set up YouTrip, a fintech startup dedicated to simplifying overseas spending for travellers, in 2018. Its prepaid Mastercard, which allows users to pay with no fees in more than 150 currencies, can also be used on public transport in Singapore. The app has amassed 500,000 downloads and, in 2019, the company raised US$25.5 million in pre-Series A funding and expanded to Thailand.
