09: 40 | Plenary I : Eat, Live, Play

Millennials are a burgeoning consumer class with growing affluence, with an estimated $170B of purchasing power globally. Their consumption and purchasing decisions will have a tremendous impact on global sustainability efforts.

Many companies are using recycled and up-cycled materials with their products, are they making change for their environmentally conscious consumers? Or companies are trying to educate their consumers to be more environmentally friendly? Either way, both consumers and businesses need to make change for our own survival on this planet. Let’s examine the latest change and trend in the supply chain and find out where the new opportunities are.

Starting a business ain’t  easy, but how about the challenges and opportunities to grow and sustain a business? Are there any key perspectives and strategies that should be taken into consideration to increase the survival rate of a business?

14: 45 | Plenary III : The Innovation & Technology Led Generation

The future will be led by the young generation who grew up with smartphones, Netflix, social media, e-commerce and IoT, so using technology to change the way they consume and live won’t be educated but integrated. How much or how deep could they integrate innovation and technology into their work places or start ups?

We are seeing innovation and technology being created to generate a whole new industry segment. What is it? How practical is it to generate profit or growth?

15: 50 | Plenary IV: Show me the Money!

Under the competitive start up landscape, it makes fundraising more challenging. While entrepreneurs are selling their dreams enthusiastically, investors are also looking for their ROI seriously. We often see the mismatch of expectations between the two, so what is the best way to close the gap?

Does ESG matter to start up in the process of fundraising? How could start up raise fund successfully? Could investors help start up to yield the best ROI? We shall hear from experts of both camps to share their success stories as well as lessons that they have learned in the investment process.
