Co-founder & CEO
Chendol is an assurance platform for smartphones that offers immediate and credible solutions to subscribers seeking coverage for their phones. Serving as a warranty through their app, Chendol aims to build a fairer phone economy that can benefit everyone by connecting consumers to reliable merchants for phone services.
Shawn, together with co-founder Yuxiang, came up with the ingenious idea of Chendol to resolve a common problem - the exorbitant high prices of phone repair services. To provide savvy smartphone users like themselves with a peace of mind, they invented the Chendol effect to protect everyone who treats their phone like a precious entity.
