I was invited to speak at a Gamemaki/SG Geek Girls event in Singapore yesterday on entrepreneurship and was impressed by the organizers, attendees and host Amazon Web Services. Many of you may be familiar with AWS or may even already be a customer but they’ve been in Singapore for a number of years and are active supporters of the startup community there. Among other things, there is someone on their team solely responsible for mentoring startups and connecting founders with capital sources.
Perhaps one of the most striking things about my experience was the passion and drive among the attendees and the desire for information. It was almost startling to be able to see the faces of so many in the audience listening intently instead of looking down at their mobile devices.
For those of you interested, here’s a copy of presentation shared last night. If you want one with my speaking notes, just ping me.
