For nearly 40 years, GIC has worked hand-in-hand with leading tech founders to invest in and support leading tech companies across the globe.
One such trend is the rapid advancement of enterprise tech, given widespread digitalisation needs by businesses. Today, there is a proliferation of data across every single part of an organisation and data plays a critical role in driving strategy and decision making.
At this year’s Bridge Forum Connects, GIC and Singapore’s Economic Development Board (EDB) brought together more than 70 business leaders from Asia and technology luminaries from Silicon Valley to discuss next-generation data infrastructure. Frank Slootman, Chairman and CEO of Snowflake; Guillaume Pousaz, Founder & CEO of Checkout.com; and Nathan Bell, Chief Digital Officer of M1, shared insights from their unique data infrastructure journeys.
In a wide-ranging discussion, these executives weighed in on the role of data in business, designing technology for scale, and leadership in a digital-first future.
