WE SPEAK TO: Ryan Chew
Ryan Chew is a Forbes 30 under 30 Asia 2020 honouree, and is a co-founder of Tribe, Singapore’s first government-supported platform driving neutrality, collaboration and growth of the blockchain ecosystem.
Tribe works closely with Enterprise Singapore, the Monetary Authority of Singapore, Temasek, Citibank, IBM and Intel, and others to grow the Blockchain ecosystem in Singapore and beyond.
Since its inception Tribe’s has accelerated more than 50 Blockchain start-ups with a combined value of more than $1 billion.
The idea for Tribe actually came out of a meal at his favourite Prata shop on Jalan Besar in Singapore with his business partner, Ng Yi Ming, when they decided to create a global blockchain ecosystem with the aim of connecting blockchain start-ups with corporations, governments, and investors.
Before that, Ryan’s entrepreneurship journey started at the age of 19, fresh out of National Service, when he spent his meagre $3000 savings to develop a gaming application.
