DigitalFilipino Club roundtable discussion with Garrett Gee

The DigitalFilipino Club had a roundtable event last August 1 at the US Embassy Seafront Compound, Pasay City.

Our guest resource person was Garrett Gee, a young founder and chief executive officer of Scan, Inc., a company involved in creating web-based and mobile tools which enable both enterprises and individuals to benefit from mobile transaction technologies. Inc. also dubbed Scan as one of America's coolest college start-up for 2012. Garrett also founded and served as the creative director of Capital G Design.

(Note that there should be sound at around 2:00)

Many thanks to club members who joined us despite the heavy rain downpour. I enjoyed our discussion with Garrett and hope to do this more with other entrepreneurs in the future.
