Tight shot

Benedict was put in charge of coordinating an important cross-border project with a public agency and a regional public counterpart. He took responsibility for the negotiations, resolved issues, and pushed the project to a successful launch.

Quest Ventures was my first full-time internship and it equipped me with valuable professional skills. I am grateful for the opportunities and trust afforded to me.

He also took on other responsibilities such as case analyses and preliminary due diligence for our investments into startups. Together with the team, he put together one of the largest community gatherings at Southeast Asia’s Silicon Valley – JTC LaunchPad @ one-North. As the first Sport Singapore intern we hired, he was instrumental in shaping HR policies on hiring and staff benefits for the Sport Singapore partnership with us.
