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

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.

Will Blockchain kill banks, or will it reinvent banking?

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. 
 
Another invisible force to watch out for, Cyber-enemies can cause tremendous damage to the systems we depend on daily. What are these threats and what can we do to guard against them? Hear cybersecurity expert Jonathan Reiber talk about on-the-ground realities of defense in today's world. Jonathan served in the Obama Administration and authored the 2015 US Department of Defense Cyber Strategy. 
 
Stay tuned to the session 'New Rules of Finance' happening on Day 1!
