Sam is from UK but committed to entrepreneurship in Myanmar. His business focuses on developing tested and affordable treatments to address oral health problems of betel addicts.

The addictive parcels of tobacco and areca nuts wrapped in a betel leaf, leave chewers with stained teeth, sensitivity, inflammation and are a major cause of oral cancer. Sam has spent two years developing and testing products that improve the oral health of betel chewers (43% of Myanmar’s population, 600 million addicts across Asia). To do this, he established partnerships with some of the world’s leading pharma-manufacturers and experts to create low cost, mass-market consumer products.

Sam was recognised for his work, and selected as one of Forbes Asia's 30 Under 30 2018 in the Healthcare & Science category.

He previously set up Myanmar's leading fresh seafood business, supplying Myanmar’s largest retailer (more than 50 stores) and leading hotels and restaurants. He has advised leading corporations on their entry to Myanmar, including one of Hong Kong’s largest consumer banks and an international law firm.

He holds degrees from University of Oxford, London School of Economics & National University of Singapore.
