The Father & Son duo who has been making rounds in the news recently is well deserved their fame for their slightly unusual partnership. Normally, young entrepreneurs would want to partner up with friends or people of similar ages when they want to set up a business or a start-up company. However, for Jian Min Sim, he does things differently as he chooses to partner up with his father, John Sim, when setting up SourceSage.
I am glad that they have allowed me some time in their busy schedule to interview them on their journey and also their thoughts on the start-up industry in Singapore and Asia. Who knows, some of their pieces of advice may turn out to be your lifesavers!
(SourceSage is a platform that lists massive information for Commodity Trading and has been used many users around the world in their work. Be sure to check them out!)
