What do we have in common with startups? A burning spirit of venture and innovation. As part of our ongoing HyperX series, Alvin Ea, CEO and co-founder of logistics platform Haulio, shares more about his startup journey and his experience as a mentor at HyperHack.
As 2020 comes around, we hope to bring in more startup events and programmes to spur on the startup ecosystem and ignite the innovative spark in everyone.
Everyone knows how important it is to get sustainability right. It is closely interconnected with today’s global economy, societies, and the environment at large. Any serious solution needs to take into account a wide range of stakeholders and an even wider range of interests. It’s no surprise then that many see it as the greatest challenge the world has ever faced.
To maximise your takeaways from any accelerator programme, you must first understand what you want as an early-stage startup. This is crucial because if you are unsure of your goals, you will likely find a mismatch in expectations.
