Colin Chong

Diversecities Board Member

Second generation Canadian. Innovation instigator. Curious technophile.


Son of two Hong Kong immigrants, Colin was nurtured in a household that demanded more while working with less. Through weekends spent in Chinese schooling, martial arts practice, mathematics competitions, and piano lessons, he was steeped in Calgary’s local Chinese community.


With a passion for combining business pragmatism, bleeding edge technology, and human-centered design, Colin currently spends his days providing product management leadership at San Francisco-based software company, AppDirect. You can also find him coaching Product Managers with Product Calgary, facilitating hackathons, playing shinny, walking his corgis, and of course, giving back to the community at Diversecities.
