Daily Deals Site Deals89 Wants To Ride The Future Of Social Commerce
is founded by four 22-year olds – Eason Chan, Yugene Lee, Felix Tioh and Ng Chun Keat – who are still studying, the former three in the National University of Singapore (NUS), and the latter in Singapore Polytechnic. They started the site because of their love for technology, e-commerce, and especially of their interest in the daily deals, group-buying space. “Our ultimate goal is to build a platform to connect business owners and customers together,” says Eason Chan. Deals89 is their first iteration of how to do exactly that. “We have decided to kick start our project with a daily deals website, improve ourselves beforehand and start educating merchants about the conceivable aspect of online marketing.” He explains that they as they learn the ropes, they’ll improve and pivot their daily deal website in preparation for the future of the daily deals market.
