Agenda

  • 06:30 PM – 07:00 PM: Introduction and Welcome
  • 07:00 PM – 07:45 PM: Guillaume Sachet – Head of Strategic Planning at Mediacorp

-Mediapreneur, a corporate VC perspective-

As companies enter the digital age, they face the threat of being disrupted by smaller, more nimble players on the one hand, or global giants on the other hand.

Mediacorp, as an example, is in the midst of re-inventing itself to face and overcome new challenges. At the heart of this transformation is innovation.

Innovation takes many forms. Many have tried. Many have failed. We see our corporate VC activities, and the Mediapreneur incubator program in particular, as a key vehicle to experiment, build partnerships and engage our employees.

We will explore the objectives, successes and challenges of the Mediapreneur.

  • 07:45 PM – 08:00 PM: Open mic

Hiring? Sourcing? Selling? Founding? Funding? Consulting?

  • 08:00 PM – 09:00 PM: Networking for all
