Background

About Jedidiah

Startup History:

During my time at Entrepreneur First in cohort 10 as an external founder, I made connections and have kept in close contact with high level individuals at large corporate companies including the MD of Accenture, the VP of HR at P&G and more.

I have started 3 startup projects:

Age 20: I ran a small production startup project with £0 budget. I recruited and led a team of 5 - successfully landing Alacarte Model-management as our client and having our video shown to Dolce and Gabbana.

Age 21-22: I ran a small recruitment startup project with £0 budget. I recruited and led a team of 4 - successfully landing 2 clients and placing 3 interns.

Age 22-23:
-I attended HULT to complete a master in International Business and lead a team of 8 men. We successfully completed a business plan for a psychometrics recruitment startup.
-I learnt to use Sketch and InVision and built a prototype of a recruitment platform that focused on psychometrics to measure candidate potential.
-I built thirdculturekidglobal.com during my master degree while also leading the team of 8.

-During all of the previous startup projects I managed, I never once paid for a single person that worked for me. They all believed in me and my vision and wanted to work with me to learn from me. The outcome has all been listed above: successfully placing candidates, writing a very detailed business plan with extensive research, creating strong relationships between the people who worked for me at the time and teaching them how to believe in their capabilities and potential.

-During my time at EF in cohort 10, I got interviews and positive feedback from CEOs and Heads of Departments in large corporate companies including EY, Salesforce, P&G, Accenture and more. I was able to approach the companies, conduct questionnaires and received results full of interest in the product I was working on at the time.

Founder and Community Builder

Third culture kid global

December 2017 - Today

I have scaled a community of third culture kids from 0 to 2000+ followers on instagram (http://instagram.com/tckglobal/), and 1000+ followers on the dedicated fb group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/193297321083934/) in less than 6 months with no budget. I have a youtube channel which focuses on third culture kids. My third culture kid youtube videos have excellent SEO, and are in the first recommendations when searching for "third culture kid" on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCILISlA4_0uek-HQtBkszIw My connection to third culture kids: I am a third culture kid. A third culture kid is someone who has lived somewhere else for a longer period of time than in their parents' passport countries. I was born in Manila and lived there until the age of 3 then moved to Guang Zhou. At the age of 7, I moved to Beijing. At the age of 18 I moved to Hong Kong and at 20 I moved to London. I have attended a total of 5 international schools and have travelled to way more places than I can count. I have a ten-year visa for the US because I have family there, I currently live in London and I frequently travel to Asia. I don't consider myself from one country, even if I am technically "Filipino". I have never lived there and it is not somewhere I call home. It is somewhere I go to for holidays or to see relatives.

Speaker

TEDx

February 2018 - Today

I have been selected to be a TEDx Speaker this September 2018. My talk will be about third culture kids. During my time at HULT I was awarded one of the two spots to be part of a university TEDx program. I have always been very persuasive, for every single team member I mentioned above, I did not pay for any of them. They worked for me for free because they believed in me and in my vision.

Founder

Facebook Closet Sale entreprener

January 2010 - January 2012

-When I was 16 years old I sold second hand clothes and operated 'facebook closet sales' (with no budget) BEFORE facebook closet sales existed. I persuaded my friends and rivals to buy the second hand clothes from me. I persuaded them so much they started talking about it and it started a trend among multiple students across the high schools I was selling to. My consumers became my high school classmates and my high school rival pupils. I would make a profit of £200 per month (2000 CNY which was a lot for China at the time).
