Adding to the excitement of Tuesday’s What’s Next, 500 Startups is going to present the results of its pioneering study of 500 of the world’s largest PLCs writes Karamjit Singh.
Adrian Vanzyl, chairman of Bangkok-based fulfillment startup aCommerce, says that traditional retailers have just a 12-month window to get into e-commerce. You can catch him at the What’s Next conference on Sept 29, says Karamjit Singh.
What’s Next is primed to be the first business tech conference in Malaysia, and also the first conference that targets large brick-and-mortar companies, writes Karamjit Singh.
Just two weeks into its coverage of Indonesia, Karamjit Singh sees much to be excited about. At the same time, he welcomes a new sponsor and speaker to DNA’s What’s Next conference.
Is Uber a technology or transport company? What about GrabTaxi? To the Jakarta Transportation Agency, it does not matter, says Karamjit Singh.
Catcha Group’s Wild Digital conference really got DNA founder Karamjit Singh excited, especially with its belief that ‘small fish’ will eat ‘big fish’ – and that’s because DNA’s What’s Next conference on Sept 29 is centred on the ‘big fish’ and what they need to be aware of in this age of digital disruption.
DNA’s What’s Next: The Business Impact of Disruptive Technology conference adds Hong Leong Islamic Bank CEO Teh Maimunah to its speaker list, with Karamjit Singh pointing out that DNA invited her to ensure the conference focuses on ‘keeping it real.’
This week's show starts with the incredible US$350-million record-breaking round that Malaysian-launched and -owned GrabTaxi has announced, but also looks at other startups playing the regional game, as well as not-so-old-school player Telekom Malaysia.
What’s an old-school business guy doing at a tech conference? Probably because his most famous venture harnessed technology and innovative business models to disrupt the entire global airline industry, and he is aiming to do the same to other industries, writes DNA founder Karamjit Singh.
In this week’s Tech Talk show on BFM Radio, Karamjit Singh is really struck by how an entrepreneur with no domain expertise was able to raise almost US$200 million for his startup while another, who started around the same time and has deep technical expertise and almost 100 patents, has raised around US$10 million.
