For startups in Southeast Asia, I have good news and opportunity to share with you! Applications are now open for Techstars Hub 71 Accelerator programme! Having visited some start ups from different industries across different hubs, conferences and events in Singapore over the years, I do try my best to share start up news and information whenever possible. Embarking on a start up route resonates with me, very similar to my journey setting up and running my own sole proprietor photography business. Moreover, I cover consumer (B2C) technology segments and in recent years, some B2B technology segments on this technology and business portal/blog.
