Founder & CEO
Digital News Asia (DNA) is an independent news portal that covers the ICT ecosystem, including industry and public policy issues, entrepreneurs, startups, movers and shakers in the industry and business trends, especially how Digital Disruption is affecting traditional businesses.
It went live in May, 2012 and covers Kuala Lumpur, Singapore (Sept 2014) and Jakarta (Sept 2015) with full time journalists and editors.
Who we are: A group of respected and award-winning technology and business journalists.
Why we are doing this: We want to see the ICT ecosystem in South-East Asia grow and develop and believe we can help it by providing insightful and analytical coverage without fear and favour in these countries.
We aim to be the Fourth Estate for the tech ecosystem in the countries we cover.
What we do: DNA will provide coverage on industry issues, business models, public policy, entrepreneurs, startups and funding, new technology as well as business trends and developments, research and ground-breaking projects, and last but not least, profiles on the movers and shakers in the industry.
There will be an emphasis on enterprise tech, but from a customer and not a vendor viewpoint, including how organisations are using ICT to address business concerns and objectives.
How we are doing it: Primarily through the content on this website. DNA will also publish special reports and white papers, and will organise forums and roundtables on issues of interest to the ICT ecosystem.
