Sounds of Our City Episode #1

This is the beginning of Sounds of Our City. We want to tell the story of Asian cities through the people and their local stories. So the first episode is on Singapore.

We have five stories from local entrepreneurs and investors whom shared their their journeys and took us to a place Singapore that has special meaning for them. There are four others joining me on this journey. We have Cherilyn Tan from Asia law network, JW Ngeow , who has had two successful exits here in Singapore, and now also an entrepreneur and angel investor in other endeavors, john Tanner, who moved to Singapore from Australia, an angel investor, Steven Liew. They all share different stories with different flavors, but they are all meaningful stories for them.
