The Asian Business Angel Forum 2012 Organising Committee regrets to inform our delegates that Patrick Riley, Director of Business Development with TechStars has had to cancel his trip to Malaysia to join the event this year.
Due to unforseen scheduling conflicts he is unable to make the trip although he will be watching the developments with great interest.
We are very fortunate however to have Cindy Ko, Vice President of International Development at Endeavor, a global not-for-profit organization dedicated to identifying and supporting High-Impact Entrepreneurs in emerging markets. Cindy is in charge of accelerating the impact of Endeavor’s model through expansion into new countries and regions.
To hear Cindy’s amazing presentation on some of the successes seen by Endeavor globally, be sure to listen to her present on “Angels and Acceleration Programmes: Endeavor” on Day 2 of the ABAF 2012 Conference.
