Our CEO Daphne Ng was an invited panellist at the DLT Compass 2019 Singapore by LongHash. Daphne was part of the panel “David and Goliath, Shaking Hands – Enterprise – Startup Partnerships” and provided insights on the complex relationships between companies in the space. The session provoked the audience to reflect on the need for co-creation in the sector to further nurture relationships between the parties.

Daphne highlighted trust and traction, as two key components in fostering relationships between start-ups and enterprises and furthered the discussion with a debate about Proof-of-Concept trials, a significant aspect in the discussion. The panellists identified the need for complex design thinking and architecture prior to investing in expensive POC partnerships with large enterprises, to ensure that startups too gain value from these trails.
