How to train your DRAGON?
By Mr Vincent Lau, CTO, PayWhere Pte Ltd

You may have heard of the term Unicorn, which is used to describe start-ups with a valuation that exceeds USD1 billion, and indeed they are as rare as the mythical creature itself since it is more common to see a start-up fail. That is because aside from having an awesome idea, and a good business model, it takes talented people to execute it right.
