The Future Stage will feature exciting talks on topics covering unmanned vehicles, the future of Asia, how big companies respond to the startup revolution and the future’s talent management, just to mention a few. We have the chance to welcome speakers like Eric Migicovsky, Founder & CEO at Pebble, John Collison, Founder of Stripe, Karoli Hindriks, Founder of Jobbatical and Dillon Seo, Co-Founder of Oculus, as well as investors like Khailee Ng, Managing Partner at 500 Startups, Saemin Ahn, Managing Partner at Rakuten Ventures, Vinnie Lauria, Managing Partner at Golden Gate Ventures, and Pieter Kemps, Vice President of Sequoia Capital.
Our Live Stage will bring you the true Singapore spirit in the form of a cozy coffee shop – or how we call it here in Singapore, kopi tiam. Entrepreneurs will gather around the coffee table to talk about their journeys, share their challenges and celebrate their successes. Some of the speakers include Darius Cheung, Co-Founder & CEO at 99.co, Pieter Walraven, former Founder at Pie, which was sold to Google, Hugh Mason, Co-Founder of JFDI, the first accelerator in Singapore, Suresh Shankar, Founder of Crayon with a successful startup exit under his belt, Prakash Somosundram, Founder of Pealo and Vice-Chairman of ACE (Action Community for Entrepreneurship), Hossan Leong, Founder of Double Confirm, Pranoti Nagarkar, the brains behind the famous automatic roti machine Rotimatic, and Titan Lee, Growth Hacker who led some of Singapore’s most successful crowdfunding campaigns.
But don’t let the coziness of the kopi table fool you – despite a more private setup, these chats will be broadcasted to our international viewers through Facebook Live!
