Alvin Poh’s Profile:
"Alvin Poh is not only a successful entrepreneur, he is also someone with a big heart. As the CEO and co-founder of Vodien—Singapore’s leading cloud hosting provider, Alvin broke into the ‘Big Boys Club’ when Vodien merged with an Australian firm, Dreamscape, in July 2017, for S$30 million. Success, however, has not gone to the SMU School of Information Systems alumnus’ head; he still remains the affable, good-natured, down-to-earth young man, politely answering every pesky (and repetitive) question thrown at him. Most impressively, Alvin has given back to the SMU community, donating S$250,000 towards a scholarship supporting the SMU education of needy students. Alvin was impressed with the SMU pedagogy, and deeply impacted by his university experience. A scholarship recipient himself, Alvin wants to pay it forward, with the hope that the next generation of alumni success stories would want to give back in future too."
