On the 9th of December 2016, GreenPro Capital had hosted a forum session in St Giles The Garden Hotel Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The event represented the Company’s second forum session with the objective to educate entrepreneurs about international market securitisation and strategies to embrace the upcoming challenges.
The forum began with Vincent Tan, Senior V.P. of GreenPro Capital, shared some of his insights about equity financing and market securitisation. Vincent mentioned SME’s should utilise the surrounding platform to even up their playing field with their competitor. Vincent continued to emphasise SME’s entrepreneurs need to change and adapt to the fast pace changing industry.
“In this day and age, business life cycle has shortened and business innovation is accelerating. Disruptive businesses would affect you one way or another. You either sink or swim. Businesses would need to learn and adapt to the new global environment by re-engineering their business model that seem fit and capitalise the opportunities presence within them,” said Vincent.
The session was later followed by Steven Yiap, Managing Director of GreenPro Wealthon, one of the subsidiaries of the GreenPro Capital.
