It comes as no surprise that Generation T honouree David Chang, founder and managing partner of VC firm Mindworks Ventures, needs to be extremely organised. 

Hong Kong-based Mindworks invests in early- and expansion-stage tech startups across Greater China and Southeast Asia, managing more than US$260 million in assets across three funds.

Chang sits on the board of 13 of Mindworks' portfolio companies—including logistics startup Lalamove, e-commerce platform Grana and digital trading marketplace Qupital—and is constantly travelling around Asia to meet clients and identify the firm's next investments.

All of which means the fitness-obsessed financier needs a bag that can keep him organised and take him from the gym, to the airport lounge to the boardroom. We asked Chang to show us what he's carrying with him right now to catch a glimpse into his daily schedule.
