TEDx Talks
"Technology can help us get to where we want to go, but without knowing why we want to get there, the metamorphosis is meaningless..."

On the first edition of TEDxUMSKK, Melvin Poh shares his views on the evolution of entrepreneurship. Melvin Poh founded The Asian Entrepreneur, 7 years ago while he was studying at Harvard
University. With other co-founders from Harvard; his work has exposed him to countless of
interesting experiences in the startup community and exciting personal stories of entrepreneurs
going through transformative journeys, realising their bold (and sometimes unconventional) visions
and impacting society in the face of adversity and challenge through courage, persistence, creativity
and technology. Essentially, he believes that entrepreneurship has fundamentally transformed in
every aspect in the last decade and has done extensive research on the evolution of
entrepreneurship. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

definitely not only are we seeing more young people & internet type businesses but also their ideas for business are also more fresh. I liked how he brought up this point about transparency, its becoming harder for business to scam us today. Back in my days, you needed an explosive investigation by a news team but today everything is on Facebook

Stumbled across this vid. Glad I did. Some very good and interesting points by the speaker. I think in the 21st century there has been a rapid shift from traditional industry that the Industrial Revolution brought through industrialization, to an economy based on information technology. And this new economy has new opportunities for new players, we need to realize business is not the same but so different. The sooner we realize this the better.
look at how it is spelt and work out the pronunciation from there. It is not spelt entreprenuer. It is a French word pronounced on-tre-pren-er.

How to Achieve Your Most Ambitious Evolution of Entrepreneurship | Melvin Poh | TEDxUMSKK 2 days ago   17:53

How you define Stephen Duneier depends on how you came to know him. Some define him as an expert institutional investor, while others know him as a large scale installation artist, avid outdoorsman, professor, decision strategist, coach, business leader, mindfulness extremist, author, speaker, daredevil or Guinness world record holder. In his talk, Stephen explains that what truly defines him aren't titles, but an approach to decision making that transformed him from someone who struggled with simple tasks to a guy who is continuously achieving even his most ambitious dreams.

For thirty years, he has applied cognitive science to investing, business and life. The result has been the turnaround of numerous institutional businesses, career best returns for managers who have adopted his methods, the development of a $1.25 billion dollar hedge fund and a rapidly shrinking bucket list.
Mr. Duneier teaches graduate courses on Decision Analysis in UCSB’s College of Engineering. His book, AlphaBrain is due for release in early 2017 from Wiley & Sons.
Through Bija Advisors, he helps business leaders improve performance by applying proven, proprietary decision-making methods to their own processes.
His artwork has been featured around the world and is represented by the Sullivan Goss Gallery. As Commissioner of the League of Professional Educators, Duneier is using cognitive science to alter the landscape of American education. He is the former Head of Currency Option Trading at Bank of America and Emerging Markets at AIG International.
