Information about the Entrepreneur
Mr. Kok Wai Kit’s inspiration to step into this industry started with the idea that the battery industry is necessary for everyone. He believes that working together and progressively expanding in a teamwork spirit is the most satisfying achievement. The best thing in his career is meeting amazing people with incredibly fresh ideas and partnering with powerful and business-oriented individuals, which makes the world of a difference as every moment is enjoyable and cherished together despite the challenges.

Mr. Kok comes from middle-class family background. He works very hard to achieve his goals. He was a salesman before establishing BateriHub. It was smooth sailing at first, but there were some obstacles. In the early stage, there were few partners with Mr. Kok and Mr. Wong (both are BateriHub’s founders) who worked together and operated a few vehicle battery branches. However, in the first year, the company was faced with the problem of branch closures, and it was deceived by hundred of thousands. Nonetheless, the unpleasant experience was a valuable lesson. It pushed Mr.Kok and Mr. Wong to upgrade the business model regularly and always find ways to meet the market’s needs.

On the other hand, BateriHub aims to incubate more talent and create a roadmap for every employee which is stated in the company’s vision. In 2021, the company had invested its team for training within 6 figures. The company is focusing more on talents’ mindset, as Mr.Kok mentioned: “as long as the talent’s mindset is in the right direction and aligned with management, we can strive everything as a team”.

Other Interesting Facts about Entrepreneur
Mr. Kok believes that proper preparation makes all the difference. It started with the idea of providing battery installation service at no cost, and free battery delivery was also later added to the list of the company’s services. With all that, he believes that innovation is the key to growing the business further. The business model has been changing regularly, and it is always necessary to find ways to update and meet the market’s needs.

Over the years, having visions, not being narrow-minded, and always learning and competing with oneself is essential to the business’s success.

Mr. Kok believes in his company’s people. The company takes pride that its people are the greatest assets and key to the company’s success. Their performance, well-being and knowledge bring significant impact to the business. BateriHub provides goals and incentives through a transparent system to motivate its people to be thoughtful about the business.
