November 2022 Newsletter

· Newsletter,Blog,Founder,Harvard

Hello everyone!

Here’s your briefing on Southeast Asia tech’s future. I wrote my POV on the FTX bank run and Binance acquisition with cascading consequences across the blockchain sector and regulators. We organized a warm BRAVE founder & VC mixer with AWS last month at Chua Ee Chien’s new bar Graft after overcoming the pandemic. We are also beta testing a “rebound” offsite for founders who are wrapping up their time at a startup/ winding down the company and exploring the next chapter of life, so email us if there’s anyone you know who might be interested or if you’d like to support this.

"You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage—pleasantly, smilingly, non-apologetically, to say 'no' to other things. And the way you do that is by having a bigger 'yes' burning inside. The enemy of the 'best' is often the 'good'."

— Stephen Covey
