ASIA ONE - June 12 - Lunch Actually founder Violet Lim gave corporate life a shot but came to the conclusion that she should start her own business. It was due to her job at a bank that allowed her to see a gap in the market. "I noticed a lot of my colleagues were single. Her friends who were about to tie the knot had met each other in university. "If you miss that opportunity, it gets more difficult. It's a real thing." Lim and her husband Jamie Lee founded Lunch Actually in 2004. Today, her company boasts ~100 employees with offices in Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Indonesia. They have arranged 63k dates across Asia.
