TGS 2023 is finally here, in the heart of innovation, Singapore, and I can’t wait to celebrate with all of you!
Esteemed Guests, Fellow Founders, Investors, Policy Makers, and Leaders, it is an honour to Chair TGS 2023, representing the global TiE community, and extend my warmest greetings to each one of you.
Our theme #GoodForTheWorld represents the spirit of Entrepreneurship, which at its core, is a force to solve some of our most pressing problems. It generates economic growth, creates jobs, and brings about technological advancements that serves as a catalyst for social and economic development, driving progress in communities and nations alike.
In fact, TiE was founded on the principles of fostering entrepreneurship, nurturing innovation, and catalysing positive change. TGS is a movement that takes us through the brightest entrepreneur ecosystems around the world, putting a spotlight on groundbreaking areas of innovation.
This year also marks a historic first, as we join forces with the Singapore Fintech Festival (SFF), a trusted global platform for leaders, policymakers, financial leaders, founders, investors, and visionaries to convene and shape the future of finance, to further amplify our efforts.
On behalf of TiE Global, TiE Singapore and all Charter Members of TiE, we invite you to be part of this movement as a force for good, where challenges are met with innovative solutions, and where innovation knows no boundaries.
The global dairy industry accounts for a total land footprint of nearly 1 billion hectares, equivalent to the size of Australia and India combined. But alternative products are gaining popularity. Plant-based meat and dairy products now account for 1.4% of total food and beverage sales in the US, and the market value reached an all-time high of $27 billion in 2023. Striking the balance between these demands is De Novo Foodlabs, a South Africa-based nutrition company. The company develops natural compounds and nutrients without the need for animal agriculture, and its recent Environmental Impact Analysis proved impressive performance as a result of this approach. Join us on November 15th to learn about notable improvements in the dairy industry and how De Novo’s innovation is sparking the next generation of nutritional solutions. Speakers include Boundless senior research analyst Jordan Farber and De Novo Co-Founder and COO Richard Greaves.Register for the webinar today!Time: 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM EST
Exciting News! The African Venture Philanthropy Alliance is thrilled to announce “The Africa Advantage”, a magazine and movement to showcase Africa as a globally competitive destination for impact capital. As the world grapples with an ever-increasing number of challenges, from climate change to pandemics, the question of where to turn for sustainable solutions with lasting impact becomes ever more pressing. At AVPA, we believe that the answer lies in Africa -. The continent is often perceived as an impact destination, yet it is abundantly rich in potential for innovative transformative change. The Africa advantage lies in the diversity and extremity of its social challenges which provide unparalleled opportunities for testing innovative and globally scalable solutions. This not only positions Africa as an investment frontier but also as the world’s premium sandbox for impactful innovations. – The goal of “The Africa Advantage” magazine is to elevate the exposure and understanding of these unique African opportunities and the role of investment, thought leadership, and global partnerships in leveraging them. We have compiled a list of accomplished contributors to the magazine and some of the leading African Impact Voices featured in this inaugural volume include Ojoma Ochai, Dr. Githinji Gitahi, Kuria Wanjau, Aakif Merchant, Diana Tsitsiwu, and Eddie Sembatya. – Join us for the virtual launch.Time: 3:00 PM – 4:30 PM EAT / 7:00 AM – 8:30 AM EST
