Having worked in both corporate and entrepreneurial settings he is able to think strategically, map out and implement the business vision and at the same time, how it should contribute to society. This lead him to start Link Capital in partnership with agarwood farmers and the governments of Laos PDR and Singapore. A partnership that will raise the GDP for Laos in a sustainable way and improve the quality of life for farmers and the community through CSR activities. Importantly, it will be the first agarwood Centre of Excellence to be established in Singapore.

 

As a project that requires immense amount of strategic planning and partnerships with stakeholders, every milestone is an achievement for Denny and he is driven by his passion to build a business with strong fundamentals.  He is often described by his peers as
