We all know that INK ASIA is happening again - ticking clocks - in just 7 days' time! Did you enjoy last year's event?
The Hub Singapore is proud to be the supporting partner for INK Asia 2016 - the continent's most relevant conference around disruption - coming to Singapore to lead breakthrough conversations around innovation and exchange cutting-edge ideas and inspiring stories.
We all have our own reasons why we're looking forward to it: some of you could be excited to meet Rick Smolan in person and discuss Big Data, while some of you could be psyched to finally witness Gingger Shankar perform live! As diverse as our reasons may be, let's take a walk-through the exciting topics and speakers to expect at INK ASIA 2016:
The Human Face of Big Data
Have you picked up The Human Face of Big Data – a mind-blowing documentary book that sold out on its first day on Amazon? Co-creator, Rick Smolan - a Time, Life and National Geographic-certified creative - will be sharing on the mind-blowing insights he uncovered while documenting the promises and perils in the growing big data revolution.
Brock Pierce might be the best person to predict what lies ahead. A pioneering digital currency, the 15x entrepreneur has an extensive track record of founding, advising and investing in disruptive businesses. He is the one person you should hear from about the future of finance.
The Wildness Protector
Running for Adventurer of The Year 2016 by National Geographic, Steve Boyes is widely known as The Wilderness Protector - a fearless and passionate biologist who fights to save the wildest places and the pulse of the planet.
He has recently led a team to the central core of Botswana’s Okavango Delta - a land where no human being had ventured into until about 100 years ago. Let Steve take you on his epic journey beyond boundaries, straight into the Okavango Delta in Botswana, at INK ASIA 2016.
