NEW Online Platform for Everyone!
Needs a date and time

One KM Mall

Finally, after taking over this meetup with my bro, Pulse, months ago, I am able to create something of VALUE to Everyone. It is a NEW Online Portal for Everyone. From Entrepreneurs, to working class, to stay at home parents, to retirees, to students, to out of job friends and even domestic helpers! How is this possible? Who did I work with to achieve that? Spent the last 3 years networking around Singapore with different groups of people from different levels and found that there is a common sentiment among people. "Money not Enough" is the phrase that I've heard hundreds if not thousands of times. Entrepreneurs say that cos they worried that they do not have enough turnover to pay their overheads. Working Class say that cos they are being squeezed - doing more things with the same pay. Stay-at-home parents say that cos things are getting expensive and $50 can buy only a few things. Retirees say that simply cos they could not retire with enough money to do the things they wished to Students say that as they wish to own the latest gadget. Out of Job friends say that as they simply need to put food on the table for their families Domestic Helpers say that cos this is the reason why they left their families behind in their home countries and came over to work. Heard the above stories thousands of times in different combinations and from different people. To help all - it's impossible as I've limited resources to do that. Out of the blue, an idea pops up one day and after doing research, I roped in an American and an Australian programming company. Together with my team of programmers, we came up with a wonderful platform. With this platform, more people could be helped along the way. Can't wait to share the platform with this group where most people are early adopters of New Programs. We have done a soft launch in August this year and it gathered more than 25K unique visitors, with close to 300 members signed up. Want to know more? I've been meeting people and telling them about this new program. To do things more effectively, I will create a mass event to introduce this Program to all. Date will be determined later and location will either be at Toa Payoh HDB Hub or One KM. Sign up now and I shall let you know the dates soon. It will not take up more than 2hrs of your time. Event will be FREE and I guarantee that there will not be any SALES Promoting so you can safely leave your wallets, purse, credit cards, NETS etc at home. :D See you guys soon! Thanks for reading such a long winded story from an old man. Regards Roger Low Chief Technology Officer
