“The rapid adoption of technology & smartphone penetration in the region has fuelled a growing start-up ecosystem, that when coupled with the rich cultural diversity, makes South East Asia probably the most exciting part of the world for startups and tech right now. That’s why I’m all the more delighted to be joining the VenturesOne team in Singapore and so energised by the opportunity to work with ambitious, driven entrepreneurs in a region that offers so much potential.” – Rafael Aldón
