We interviewed Harris to find out more about his thoughts on speaking at the upcoming Singapore Business Review's 20 Hottest Startups Panel Briefing 2017, happening on July 11, 2017, 8:30-11:30AM at the Meeting Room 3345, Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre

What are your previous experiences and positions held that contributed to who you are as a​n entrepreneur today?

Prior to GuavaPass, I worked at Livestream in NYC. I joined when the start-up was still young and that is where I learned how to work quickly and efficiently in a start-up environment. It gave me the entrepreneurial itch and exposed me to many parts of running a business, all of which have helped me grow with GuavaPass.

What are your key business philosophies?

A company is nothing without a strong team; employee drive, satisfaction and belief in the product are key to success. Work hard, play hard!

The SBR 20 Hottest Startups Panel Briefing will be on July 11 at the Meeting Room 3345, Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre.
