SO what questions would you like Tan Sri Vincent Tan, founder of Berjaya Group Bhd, to answer at the second DNA-TeAM Disrupt series?
Note that we will restrict our questions to the area of investing in technology, especially the Internet.
Not surprisingly, the 110 seats for the event have been taken up. The RSVP went up at 6pm on Friday, Oct 12, and by 10am the next day, all the seats were taken. But not to worry, TeAM (the Technopreneur Association of Malaysia) plans to have some video highlights up the day after the event.
But for those who did not get their seats, here is an opportunity for you to get in a question you have. Just share the question you most want Tan to answer, in the comments section at the bottom of this article. Also tell us why you want that question posed to him, if possible.
To help you out, here is a list of questions DNA (Digital News Asia) plans to ask him. We may not have time to ask all of them, as the audience will likely have plenty of their own questions too, so perhaps you want to pick your top five from this list:
When did you get interested in the Internet?
Do you use email?
Do you follow technology developments? How?
What excites you most about the future when it comes to technology?
When did Ganesh Kumar Bangah first come under your radar?
What convinced you to fork out the US$38 million for Friendster in 2009?
If today you were keen to invest in a tech entrepreneur, what would you look for?
What have been the biggest lessons you learned from investing in all those Internet companies in 2001?
If your friends asked your advice if they should become angel investors, what would you say?
If a tech entrepreneur came to you to invest in them but they had failed in their last venture, would you still consider their proposal? Why or why not?
