Been a busy couple of weeks with work, events and some good old-fashioned networking. Say what you will about social networking, great tool – the real meat of networking is meeting real people, bonding and discussing things – yes things.
I covered some of my activity here.
Hats off to viki for their huge round of funding: http://techcrunch.com/2011/10/20/andreessen-horowitz-bbc-greylock-put-20m-in-international-video-site-viki/
Heard about this site today – looks cool: http://chope.com.sg/
All in all – a lot of activity in Singapore but you have to dig past the headlines and the events to find the real doers – the folks building companies, heading up multi-national operations and the other peeps running around to ensure the ecosystem takes off. I have every faith that it will – just a matter of time.
Back to work..
