As a newly minted graduate during the dot com boom, Huang Shao Ning co-founded the jobs portal, JobsCentral, with her husband Lim Der Shing. After several years running the company, CareerBuilder approached them with an offer to buy the business, giving Shao Ning and her team a well-deserved exit. Shao Ning is now an angel investor and mentor to fellow entrepreneurs at her angel club called AngelCentral.
