Hi, I’m David Z Wang, CEO and co-founder of Helicap, landing once again with a fresh edition of the Heli-pad for you.
In late October, my fellow co-founder Quentin Vanoekel and I had a blast participating in the distinguished Uniglobal 3Annual Asia-Pacific Microfinance Forum. While Quentin spoke in a panel discussion about the roles innovation and partnership play in tumultuous times, I explored the myriad of opportunities that the microfinance scene in South East Asia had to offer.
In this exciting edition of the Heli-pad, there is a summary report of some highlights of our time at the forum. Below, you will find both a clip of me discussing the growing P2P lending scene in Asia, and other information you will find useful if you are interested in entering the alternative lending space in South-East Asia.
This report summarises the content that has been presented by Helicap co-founders, David Z Wang and Quentin Vanoekel, at the 3rd Asia-Pacific Microfinance Forum.
