When you are standing in the course, your eyes studying the curves of the field, your skin feeling the wind, your fingers going through the club grips emerging from the bag. When the data gathered by each of your senses are running through your brain to prepare for the perfect shot. Golf taught me that success only comes after every single piece of the puzzle has been put in the right position. And that you are the sole responsible for your actions and decisions.
The concept of storing information in an immutable ledger that is managed by and accessible to everyone seemed to me as revolutionary as the internet.
I have always been intrigued by technology. As a child, I loved to bustle among the wires, connectors and processors that were piled up in my father’s former workshop. Being a millennial, I had the luck to grow up in the 2.0 era of global digital connectivity where high-speed internet and smartphone apps have become part of everyday life. And there came blockchain. The concept of storing information in an immutable ledger that is managed by and accessible to everyone seemed to me as revolutionary as the internet itself was back in my childhood.
A technology that ensures transparency and safety, blockchain can be applied to virtually any process that needs to be tracked or data that are consolidated in the same file from different sources. In a world where SMEs struggle to conceptualise a profitable and sustainable business model, this innovative concept can be the revolutionary element that will turn them into number-one players in the market. This is how the idea of PLMP Fintech was crafted: empowering the future of SMEs with blockchain education, implementation and support and creating a whole ecosystem for them to thrive within.
A mentor back in Singapore Sports School where I studied at taught me a quote that I hold dearly even until today: “Don’t talk, just act. Don’t say, just show. Don’t promise, just prove”. PLMP Fintech is a very young company that is walking a path that has already been traversed by others. However, what gives us the cutting edge over the rest is the credibility that we portray. In less than one year, we have already fulfilled our dream of launching a 6-floor building dedicated to becoming Asia’s biggest Blockchain Technology Centre as a knowledge hub for education and development with an incubating space for SMEs.
The milestones that a one-year-old start-up has been able to achieve are tangible evidences of our success. Bigger challenges might be expecting us ahead, but I am confident that, with the unique contribution of each component of my diverse team of visionaries, our ecosystem will keep growing to add on new services and expand its reach to our neighbouring countries. Nothing comes without humility, dedication and hard work and here at PLMP Fintech we are always ready to learn and adapt.
Because I want this to be my perfect shot.
