New Channel NewsAsia programme on tech entrepreneurship
August 29, 2011 by Terence LEE
Growing BiG Ideas, a four-part program that will introduce viewers to the tech entrepreneurship scene in Singapore, is inviting questions on its Facebook Page for Frank Levinson, managing director of the commercial incubator, Small World Group (see interview).
The program is commissioned by the National Research Foundation (NRF) and will be screened on Channel NewsAsia starting from 6th September 2011. Selected questions will be answered by Frank during the program itself on the episode that will broadcast on 13th September.
Other special guests that will be introduced on the show include Joi Ito, founder of early stage fund and incubator Neoteny Labs (now heading LinkedIn Japan), Dr Francis Yeoh, CEO of NRF, international investors Tim Draper and Michael Moritz, and many more.
Besides, investors, entrepreneurs, university academics, and engineers will be featured. The four key sectors highlighted will be: Interactive and digital media, biomedical and clean tech.
In Channel NewsAsia’s own words, the program seeks to show how “Singapore’s supportive enterprise ecosystem helps them incubate an idea to life — from seeding to raising money, from expansion hype to the exit plan. The series also seeks to inspire risk taking in Singapore, which many international global investors regard as Asia’s best launch pad for innovative businesses.”
