In 2010, Tian met a horrific car accident which nearly costed his life. His mentor told him "when you are driving, you cannot just look at the car directly in front of you, you must look at the car in front of the car in front of you.” He learned that in business, we cannot just look at the current methods of growing your business and overcoming current challenges, we need to also look at the market trends 5 years or 10 years down the road. From this new life experience and revelation, Tian has been studying intensively about the future of marketing and discovered the wonderful world of mobile apps and its business potential. He is now devoted to sharing the message of mobile apps and entrepreneurship with people all over the world.   Now he’s a mentor to numerous business and non-profit organizations in various industries such as accounting, dating, investments, real estates, food, laundry, coffee, photography, events, kickboxing, music, education, marketing, fashion, insurance, fitness, healthcare, dance, elderly, community services and many more. He cares deeply about people and is passionate about what he does.    Tian is now a a full time speaker, trainer and consultant. On June 1st, 2014, Tian shared the stage with Gerry Robert and spoke at the National Achiever’s Congress, Singapore’s most premier business conference, with approximately 7,000 people in attendance. Tian has also been invited to speak to people of different countries outside of Singapore, such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines and Romania.   Lim Tianyi is also the co-founder and managing director of Appsolutely Technologies Pte Ltd, which helps businesses integrate their websites and mobile apps together to market and grow their business. He is also an Internet marketing and mobile app marketing consultant helping individuals start their own Internet and mobile app business, as well as helping existing business owners grow their sales and profits.   He actively participates in community and missionary work. His main objective of being an entrepreneur and speaking is to help more people achieve greater successes in life by creating more passive income, have more free time, and let technology work for them. He believes that entrepreneurship is a skill that can be learned and achieved with diligence and determination. Follow Lim Tianyi at facebook.com/limtianyi or contact him at tian@appsolutely.sg

THE NEW FRONTIER OF FUNDING, INVESTING & DEAL MAKING

THE NEW FRONTIER OF FUNDING, INVESTING & DEAL MAKING
Event on 2016-04-22 07:30:00
THE NEW FRONTIER OF FUNDING, INVESTING & DEAL MAKING The “rules” for raising capital, investing in companies, and M&A have all changed in the last couple of years. How? All of it can now be done online on web platforms for much smaller amounts of investor capital. Not only can investors put in as little as or as much as ,000 on these deals, businesses can take advantage of Texas’ investor crowdfunding deals to raise up to million per project – again, all of it done online by letting investors come to you. When it comes to M&A – whether buying or selling – for private equity, real estate development, investment banking, broker-dealer, independent investment advisor, venture capitalist, or family office, every deal can now be done through a web portal – and the deals can be public or private. How does all of this work? Join us to learn how investor crowdfunding, alternative investing and M&A can be streamlined allowing CEOs to stay focused on growing their business. SPEAKERS Bobby Katoli, Co-founder, Managing Partner MassCatalyst Bobby co-founded MassCatalyst in 2014. Mass Catalyst is an alternative asset funding platform that works with private equity, broker-dealers, and investment banks to syndicate and transact on deals on the platform. The platforms technology handles payment processing, escrow services, accreditation, AML, OFAC checks, and gives full investor relations support with post-transaction portfolio management to keep investors up to date on performance and changes pertaining to their investment. MassCatalyst is automating investment banking. Bobby graduated from TCU with a major in finance and minors in accounting & chemistry. Danny Kelman, CEO CrowdBoarders Danny has built the first social investing network for tech startups needing to raise capital. Crowdboarders works with both investors and tech companies in Texas looking to raise capital with equity deals. Since the start of the crowdfunding industry, Danny contends in order for the industry to succeed, it must go social and it must be free for everyone to use. With these values, he has built a tech community of entrepreneurs and investors which has become CrowdBoarders. Prior to launching CrowdBoarders, Danny has worked as an Internet marketing specialist, a UI/UX Designer and is a self-proclaimed  social media addict.     Thank you to our 2016 Enlightened Speaker Series Sponsors:
