Drawn to the prospect of being an entrepreneur, Alex Teh and four other friends decided to start the little red ants creative studio in 2009 – a local creative studio specialising in multimedia storytelling.
When they first started out shortly after graduating from the Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information, they developed business plans in each other’s homes “to save costs,” but ultimately found their first office in a small unit in a Joo Chiat shophouse.
For Teh, the best part of the job is how the world of creative arts and business meld together.
“No day is routine. There will always be new things to do, to learn, new people to meet, new ideas and projects to work on,” said the 33-year-old.
little red ants is looking at launching new ventures locally, as well as expanding overseas.
Looking back at his time in WKWSCI, Teh fondly recalls hanging out at atrium, known as ‘the benches.’
“(It was the place) where the fondest memories happened, from the very first day to the very last,” he said.
