Founding Team

The Co-Founders


Sang Lam

Sang studied Electrical and Electronic Engineering in The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) where he became a Christian during his undergraduate studies. During those years in HKUST, he was exposed to numerous real-life stories and ideas about starting up in business especially in high-tech areas. Besides which, he also gained enlightenment about entrepreneurship from his former research supervisor Professor Mansun Chan. While he was working as a research assistant at HKUST, he also studied postgraduate Physics. He later joined what was then a newly-founded Christian secondary school in Tung Chung on Lantau Island in the year of the SARS outbreak in Hong Kong. Being one of the founding teachers of the secondary school, it came to his mind to set up a knowledge-based company. The vague idea of "Wislant" was conceived then, when he resigned from the school. The idea was not followed up on but remained somewhere in his mind and he went to the UK to pursue doctoral studies in Physics at the University of Sheffield. While enjoying the tranquillity of Sheffield, various ideas from science to business came to his mind again. On recognizing the language talents of Tim Foulstone whilst attending Sheffield Chinese Christian Church for three years, the feeling became intense in his heart that he should explore the setting up a company which starts by offering English language services. Coincidentally, Vincent Lo, a good Christian friend of his also had some thoughts about setting up a web-based company and Vincent has well-rounded experience and expertise. So they set to work together to co-found Wislant.com. Apart from his scientific research areas, Sang is also keen on language study, systematic theology and history.



Vincent Lo

Vincent graduated from the City University of Hong Kong with a BSc degree in Computer Studies. He has a keen interest in web development with multi-media information technology (IT). In fact, he has successfully built a website RedTeaClub.com which serves as a focal point for all fans of Legend of Galactic Heroes. Apart from being a webmaster of RedTeaClub.com, he has also organised various off-line activities for the fans. He has used his IT skills and knowledge in working for several organisations in education, government and commercial fields. Outside his full-time work, he also serves as a voluntary helper in the Christian fellowship groups in his church. Vincent has a strong desire to use his speciality skills in web development to facilitate good communication among people.
