Minterest Gives Back – Meals-on-Wheels for the Elderly in Singapore

Minterest’s first volunteering experience with TOUCH Home Care! On 30 January 2019, our team decided to spend our afternoon out of office to participate in the Meals-on-Wheels programme. As Chinese New Year is approaching near, we also brought along some mandarin oranges to wish our beneficiaries a very Happy New Year.


Meals-on-Wheels is a meal delivery programme to meet the daily needs of the home-bound elderly. The elderly, who usually live alone, depend on volunteers from TOUCH Home Care’s Meals-on-Wheels to deliver their meals every day.

Before we start…

Let’s take a team picture! And now we’re ready to go!

The delivery experience

Our boys preparing the food and moving off for delivery! All beaming with joy and excitement to make a difference.


The ladies are also working hard! Everyone is eager to contribute back to society!

And we are all done after 2 hours! Hope the elderly enjoyed their meals!

Time for team drinks!

After we complete all of our assigned deliveries, we gather back and reward ourselves with some team drinks! This has certainly been a meaningful experience for the whole of Minterest team!

If you are interested to volunteer in such initiatives, do get in touch with TOUCH Home Care.

Member’s Night at Chef’s Table – 5 Nov 2018

Another night we get to enjoy with our members. It has been 9 months since our last investor’s night, and we are glad to be able to connect with our members once again through this event. What a coincidence as it so happens to also be our 18-months anniversary!


Without further ado, let us complete our set up and have some fun!

Starting it off

Firstly, we start off with a speech by our very own Co-founder and CEO, Charis Liau as she shares about our Minterest story and the future of the financial services industry. We hope you have also enjoyed our 18-months anniversary video as we bring you along our journey since our incorporation.

Then, our Co-founder and COO, Ronnie Chia shared about his (love for fried rice,) what you should look out for when making an investment and the investors’ journey with Minterest, which everyone who decides to join our platform as an investor will be able to experience.

The owner of Chef’s Table, Chef Stephan, who was a borrower on our platform, also spoke about his borrower journey with us.


After the presentation

Now it’s time – let us all mingle around and enjoy!

Thank you to all members who participated in this event. We hope to see more of you at our next member’s night, till then!
