Startup Grind is a global startup community educating, inspiring, and connecting entrepreneurs. On 27 August Startup Grind Singapore welcome two speakers from online payment and FinTech industries to share their thoughts with the StartupGrind community.
The format will be a 30 mins panel talk with Tyson and Tanmai, followed by a 15 mins Q&A session opened to the floor. This is your chance to be up close and personal with veterans in the online payment and FinTech industries to get to know more about the dynamics of those industries.
So do drop by for a night of open conversation, beer and opportunities to mix, mingle and have a good time with like-minded entrepreneurs. Our last event with Vinnie Lauria was a full house event, so don’t miss it this time. Early bird tickets are on sale. Secure your seats now. http://bit.ly/1IUI0dx
