November was a good month. I had a few coffee sessions to meet up with co-founders or key persons in various FinLit / FinTech companies. The general consensus is that more could be done to raise the Financial Literacy level in Singapore via collaboration across the industry. I guess this common goal could do better by getting traction and attention, rather than be silo-ed within each corporate setup.
I attended a few events as well, namely
- Seedly Personal Finance 101 (19 Nov)
- Endowus Make your money work for you: CPF, goal-based investing (27 Nov)
- *Scape Meet the Masters: Retail Entrepreneurs (28 Nov)
With that much young blood and passion in the community, I don’t see why the more experienced and young can’t come together and trade learning experiences and ideas. I personally was impressed by the number of young adults who is willing to take the plunge in the far end in the never-say-die spirit.
Let me learn from you, as much as you might learn from me. A quick round-up for November 2019.
