Singapore - * feel free to message for alternative timings if none are open!* We'll begin with a quick walkthrough of one of the coolest co-working spaces in Singapore! We will grab a beverage and introduce ourselves. The session starts with a quick Q&A to understand your familiarity with the startup sector. I will then share insights about the rise of Singapore’s tech startup scene: history, current trends, main technologies, new players and regional landscape. We will then use design thinking and introduce how startups navigate uncertainty through scenario planning, and describe the key actors, drivers and events in the startup ecosystem in Singapore. We will share a day in the life of a startup founder - productivity routines, ups and downs, stories etc. You may ask anything, we’re happy to share our personal journeys! By the end of the experience, you will have an overview of how the startup ecosystem works, how founders are solving today's problems, developing new business models and discover what investors look for and why in Singapore and the region. This will be a better experience if the session is customised and curated based your needs and level of familiarity on topics. Feel free to share with me your interests and any requests!
