Entering the Year of the Dragon!
The year 2012 means different things to different people. To some, it is possibly the end of the world, to others a ‘water dragon’ year – whatever that may mean.
To HPA, perhaps it could be a year of even greater contribution to society and to the business community.
Some of my friends have asked me what is HPA all about.
To me, it is first and foremost about lasting friendships, about good friends enjoying each other’s company, and good friends wanting to do some good together; sort of a good ‘mafia’ – the theme of our most recent annual dinner and dance, which was fabulously well organized.
I have personally learned much, gained much, and had much fun being part of HPA.
I am inspired by fellow HPA friends who had given generously to well worthy social causes over the past years.
The HPA business angel networking events are the most well attended in Singapore as startups are eager to network with HPA technopreneurs. Some startups had even received ‘smart money’ investments from HPA members in the process.
These startups value the experience, expertise and connections of the HPA members.
‘HPA’ to many means, the ‘Highly Preferred Alumni’ and should remain that way for many years to come with even more new dynamic members joining.
Let’s enter and ride the Dragon year!
