Tey Por Yee, or better known as Larry Tey or Dato’ Larry is a Malaysian businessman, venture capitalist, and socialpreneurship activist. Tey earned a Bachelor of Commerce degree, majoring in Business Administration and Finance from the University of Manitoba. Tey invested in various startup companies in North America and Canada, before returning to Malaysia where he joined a corporate advisory company.
Dato Larry is inspired by Malaysia Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir bin Mohamad’s Vision 2020 (Wawasan 2020), and brought back expertise and investment to the capital city of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur in the late 90’s. Over the last decade, Larry co-founded Nexgram Group, a conglomerate and investment company in businesses including telecom, property and information technology industries with the presence in Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, and China.
The Founders have since divested their investments and left the Group in good hands under professional operated board and management. The strong foundation and spirit to evolve and deliver value for shareholders remain the core value and positive culture of the Group until the present day.
