What  is this about?

​The only constant in the world is change (remember a time when Nokia was King of the world?), and startups play a vital role in growth acceleration and innovation by questioning the status quo and finding new ways of doing things as well as coming up with inventive solutions for everyday problems. Successful startups in the long run can even disrupt markets or even the way in which people go about their daily lives (Alibaba and Singles Day, anyone?).

​Which is why it is important for existing businesses to not fear the rise of startups but instead discover ways and avenues in which they can work together or learn from them. Happening on Friday, join Dr. Hank Huang, Monmanus Tadamnuaychai, Paddy Tan, and Jeslin Bay to discuss the why and how startups can help innovate and accelerate the growth of your business!
