E01 : Innovation and DeepTech in Asia

In this pilot episode I introduce myself and explain why I launched The Future Growth Podcast.

Certain technological innovations will profoundly change and shape the way we live our lives over the next decade. Technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, BlockChain, Gene Editing, HealthTech and others.

Innovation in Asia is moving at neck-breaking speeds due to a large availability of capital, a strong willingness to invest, the availability of the brightest and most creative minds and a favorable regulatory context.

One of the advantages of living in Singapore is that one gets to people working on a large variety of deeptech innovations. The goal of this podcast is to have such people on as guests and help listeners in Europe and the United States get a better grip on the latest Deeptech developments in Asia.
