Wandy Yeap Hoh co-founded MeeGenius in 2009 with a vision to make reading more interactive and engaging through technology. As a parent, she did not see a product on the market that was suitable to meet her children’s need for a tool that made reading fun on devices they already loved to use.

With 15 years of experience as an executive with Credit Suisse First Boston and Pomona Capital, Hoh left the business world in 2007 to pursue her entrepreneurial passion.
Hoh is also an active philanthropist; she is on the Friends Committee of Baby Buggy charity, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing New York City's families in need with essential equipment, clothing, and products for their infants and young children.
She holds a BA cum laude in Business Economics from UCLA and an MBA from Columbia Business School. She is fluent in Chinese and resides in New York City with her husband and three young daughters.
