Allen Lau is the co-founder and CEO of Wattpad, the world’s largest community of readers and writers.
With years of experience building successful mobile tech companies, Allen first started prototyping a mobile eReading app in 2002 on a grey-scale Java phone that could only display 5 lines of text. He wanted to solve a problem he was facing – how to read while on the go. So for the past 10 years Allen has been exploring the power of mobile/social collaboration, online communities, and user-generated content.
Wattpad now serves 13 million people a month and with over 10 million stories uploaded, Allen is leading a team that’s revolutionizing the way people share and discover stories on the web and across every mobile device.
