2. Bid

Bid your Karma Points to meet inspiring people, such as humanitarians, entrepreneurs, athletes, or artists. Most auctions allow every bidder to win if the goal is reached.

Meet Malcolm, Head of Product at SCMP, and hear how he's transforming the 115-year old publication into a global news media company.


Malcolm Ong is the Head of Product at the South China Morning Post (SCMP), a leading global news media company.

He joined SCMP from Lyft, a ride-sharing platform that operates in over 550 cities in the US. There, he led an array of product initiatives from to organic passenger and driver growth to partnerships with Fortune 500 corporations. Malcolm’s team launched Lyft’s first progressive web app (PWA), Amazon Fire app, Windows 10 app, and its iconic connected dashboard light called “Amp”. Prior to Lyft, Malcolm was an Entrepreneur-in-Residence (EIR) at 500 Startups, a global venture capital fund with over US$350 million in committed capital, where he advised a class of 30+ startups through the fund’s accelerator program. Before 500 Startups, Malcolm co-founded Skillshare, a NYC-based education-tech start-up, and led the product team at OMGPOP, a NYC-based gaming studio. He has also held senior technology positions at Razorfish and IBM.

Malcolm holds a BSc degree in Computer Science with a double major in Business Administration from Carnegie Mellon University.
