👋 Hi Jason, tell us about yourself! What are 3 words that best sum you up?
J: Direct, Social and Plucky
What do you do at SC Ventures, and how are you rewiring the 🧬 DNA in banking?
J: I basically harvest ideas from internal folks – whether at SC Ventures, Standard Chartered or our Ventures. I curate the ideas with my team – we develop, refine, optimise, and validate them – then empower the person with the idea(s) to pitch them back to SC Ventures for sponsorship; or to the Bank for adoption if it’s an internal-only idea. We call it Intrapreneurship .
What about SC Ventures gets you out of bed in the morning? 💪
J: See my answer above. I basically harvest ideas! How cool is that? Not only do I engage with the most creative people in the organization, but their creativity and drive helps me think differently…. So basically I see the coolest stuff, and a bi-product of that is I get smarter. Not bad, right?
If you had a 🎙️ podcast, who would be your first guest and why?
J: I have an idea that I think would change the world, but I’m struggling to get the person/people with the right resources to hear me. So, self-servingly, my podcast would have Barak Obama as my first guest. I think he’s the most inspirational leader I’ve seen in a long time. Finally, he’s cool and funny.
