A technology entrepreneur/investor based in Hong Kong, Yat Siu is founder and CEO of Outblaze, a conglomerate of companies focused on cloud, AI, blockchain, and smartphone software. Siu began his career at Atari Germany in 1990. In 1995 he moved to Hong Kong to establish Hong Kong Cybercity/Freenation, the first Asian free web page and email provider. In 1998 he set up Outblaze, an award-winning pioneer of multilingual white label web services. In 2009, he sold Outblaze’s services business to IBM, and pivoted Outblaze to digital entertainment services and products.

 

Siu is a director for TurnOut Ventures, a partnership between Outblaze and Turner Entertainment that brought to prominence the hugely popular emoticon character Tuzki. He is co-founder and director of mobile developer and publisher Animoca, and of its ASX-listed spinoff Animoca Brands, including its subsidiary OliveX. In 2017 Siu set up the Dalton Learning Lab, an afterschool lab environment that supplements Hong Kong students with skills not emphasised by the local education system, including divergent thinking and design thinking. He has earned numerous accolades including Global Leader of Tomorrow at the World Economic Forum, and Young Entrepreneur of the Year at the DHL/SCMP Awards.
