Fion Leung is the Co-founder of Time Auction, a tech-enabled charity that encourages volunteerism with inspiring experiences.
Started as a side project in 2014, Time Auction quickly gained traction among generous donors and young adults. Time Auction became a registered charity in Hong Kong in early 2017 with Fion dedicating herself full-time to the charity and is now leading the international expansion, operations, and continuing the mission to make volunteering a fulfilling and vital part of people’s lives.
Prior to Time Auction, Fion was Product Evangelist at a media startup, Notey, and Analyst at Barclays after graduating from HKUST with a degree in Business Administration.

Ivy joined Time Auction in 2017 to help manage events, run day-to-day operations, and maximize their community impact. Outside work, you’ll probably find her spending time with her 8 cats, a rabbit and a fish at home.
Inspired by the idea of integrating volunteerism into daily life, Ivy started volunteering in high school to re-home abandoned animals. After attaining her Bachelor of Arts from Hong Kong Polytechnic University, she spent another 4 years working for an INGO, OneSky, helping orphaned children in China.
In her spare time, she runs an animal charity with a group of awesome animal lovers. So if you're looking for a furry friend, Ivy is the person to talk to!
