Welcome back to our webinar series, #GENZOOMS. In this episode, we will share stories about how our behaviours have changed from ‘Life after COVID’ to ‘Life with COVID’. So how does that change how we live, work, and shop, especially with the gradual re-opening of economies? Will e-Commerce spell the demise of retail? Will WFH mean that CoWorking spaces are irrelevant? What will CoLiving mean when there is social distancing?
Our host Martin Tang invited three panellists to dig more insights and stories about the situation.
Irwan Mussry, President and CEO of Time International
Vanessa Hendriadi, CEO and Co-Founder of GoWork
Sagar Khatri, VP and Corporate Development of Hmlet
There’s a good insight from Irwan Mussry where he stated that the e-Commerce and the brick and mortar should go hand in hand. And at the same time, Vanessa said that the flexible work arrangement is definitely here to stay.
We are very delighted to have our second episode of #GENZOOMS webinar series. In the past months we’ve noticed a lot of startups continue to raise money, despite the gloomy business outlook that accompanies the coronavirus. Are they lucky? Or did they simply have a well-executed fundraising plan?
Our host Martin Tang invited four panellists to uncover the secrets and get their insights and stories about the situation.
Steve Melhuish, Venture Partner of Wavemaker Partners
Junxian Lee, Co Founder of Moovaz
Kristin Lim, Director and Investments of Fundnel
Velisarios Kattoulas, CEO of Lanturn
Junxian Lee emphasised one of the important things is steadying the ship, and still being able to confident about the business model, and identified the areas that we need to tweak moving forward. That is helpful in giving investors’ confidence.
Introducing our new webinar series, #GENZOOMS! Via Zoom, we’ll share stories of hope & success, as well as tips to help the businesses survive. For the first episode, we took a close look at how the COVID-19 situation has forced Real Estate professionals to digitalise, perhaps far more than non-insiders could have imagined possible. The industry has come a very long way and is beginning to show green shoots of hope.

Bruce Wells, Managing Director APAC of Matterport
Eugene Lim,Director, Marketing & Sales of Oxley Holdings Limited
Jason Gregory Managing Director of PropertyGuru FastKey
