On behalf of HaTCH, Infinity Cube, Fastlane HR Solutions Services and Techpacker, I'm delighted to invite you to our upcoming event 'Essential considerations to funding a startup & hiring the right talent'.

Startups more often than not face considerable challenges when it comes to funding their business and hiring the right talent. Up to 80% of startups fail in the first 16-18 months as entrepreneurs struggle to fund their business adequately, resulting in often being unable to make routine payments to cover everyday costs. These failures are also directly tied to hiring the right people for the job.

Please join us at this event as our distinguished guest speakers: Victor Tan, Co-Founder - Infinity Cube, Cindy Chui, CEO - Fastlane HR Solution Services and Josie Tam, Co-Founder - Techpacker shares their insights and experiences on:

  • Common issues startups face when it comes to funding
  • The importance of cash flow and how to effectively manage it
  • Different methods to fund your startup
  • Selecting the right person for the job
  • Retaining talent in your startup

Please join us at this event as we learn and discuss the essentials on starting up.
