You’ll most likely go through your network, your accelerator, or even cold call to get a meeting some of of these guys. However, how are you going to stand out amongst them?

Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.
However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.
