Hsiang has spent most of his career involved in the worlds of tech and/or real estate.

During the first half of his professional life, he graduated with an engineering degree and bootstrapped an e-commerce site. He then freelanced as a management consultant on the side to fund the business.

After exiting, he became a proptech-forward real estate developer and property owner.

Derek has worked on over $100 million of real estate deals and owns stakes in several New York City multifamily buildings.
