SINGAPORE – EP!TOME, Singapore’s first live conference organised for young Singaporean entrepreneurs, is set to take place on March 26-27, 2021.
The event will be the first live conference of this scale for youths since the MICE events pilot was announced.
Notable overseas individuals like Kevin Lin (co-founder of live streaming platform Twitch) and Patrick Lee (co-founder of film and television aggregator Rotten Tomatoes) will be speaking at the event via the Virtual Global Stage, which stimulates life-sized, real-time discussions between parties.
About 120 youth entrepreneurs are expected to attend the event.
