Tan was with Sequoia for five years, joining it in 2012 from Singapore’s National Research Foundation (NRF). He left Sequoia in June this year. Tan was Sequoia’s first hire for Southeast Asia and sourced multiple investment opportunities for Sequoia India, including Tokopedia, Go-jek, Carousell, 99.co and companies like Appier and Dailyhotel, where he represented Sequoia on the board.
