In this episode of Startups to Scaleups, we chat with FLEXIROAM Co-Founder and Vice President, Jason Khoo about how his Startups is reinventing the global mobile virtual network by offering an affordable alternative to current mobile roaming services. Founded in 2011 with the aim of expanding the horizons of global communications, FLEXIROAM leverages on innovative technologies to offer international outbound travellers voice and data roaming in over 200 countries and territories. With alliances in over 100 travel industry partners, including major airlines and top travel agencies, FLEXIROAM is poised to become a formidable name in the international roaming marketplace.
"You need to have the courage to scrap everything and start fresh to stay relevant and ahead of the game", quips Jason. He firmly believes that as you grow from startup to scaleup, you will have multiple products and services which, while they can give you good revenue streams, they may not be the best way to create an identity. "Even at scaleup stage, you must have the courage to re-invent yourself for the next phase of growth."
FLEXIROAM was listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) in June 2015 with the goal of rapid growth and global expansion.
