Darius had also demo-ed his company service at the last version of Entrepreneur27 Singapore meetup, which is an event series intended to provide a community platform to showcase enterprising startups by young entrepreneurs under 27 to like-minded under-27ers. Entrepreneur27 is a Silicon Valley based organization started by Noah Kagan, a product manager of Facebook.com and his team of passionate, driven entrepreneurs. E27 Singapore will be holding our next meetup (for details, click here) on June 21 to coincide with the SMU iX Conference where Google's Marissa Mayer (Vice President of Search Products and User Experience) will also be making her first speech in Singapore.
