Technopreneur Webinar Series 2020

Vertex Partnership Group posted on 22 Jul 2020

Vertex Holdings is pleased to present the Technopreneur Webinar Series, an 11-part guide for aspiring technopreneurs. Aimed at facilitating the exchange of knowledge about entrepreneurship, partners from Vertex Ventures Southeast Asia and India and Vertex Growth will speak to founders from Vertex portfolio companies as well as strategic partners, to share their advice and entrepreneurial experiences.

“Prior to COVID-19, Vertex regularly organized events and activities via our Technopreneur Circle community. COVID-19 has made it impossible to organize such physical networking events, which is clearly an integral part of entrepreneurship, one that also involves learning from each other. As part of our efforts to give back to the wider innovation and startup community, we have decided to bring our mentoring online through this Technopreneur webinar series,” Chua Kee Lock, CEO of Vertex Holdings said.

“This series aims to facilitate the sharing of ideas and insights from many startup CEOs and founders. Critically important, it provides aspiring technology founders and leading innovators a fundamental understanding on the intricacies and art of entrepreneurship.”

Join us on this journey of discovery. The webinars will run almost weekly on Fridays from August 7 to November 6, 2020. It is free to attend but registration is required.
