What drives some of Asia’s most dynamic social entrepreneurs? How do they build a culture of innovation? And how are they leveraging technology to make a greater impact on the world? 

We had so many burning questions for the winners of this year’s Gen.T x Credit Suisse Social Impact Awards that we couldn’t choose between them. So we decided to ask them all—really, really fast. 

Produced in partnership with Credit Suisse, the Social Impact Awards recognise Gen.T honourees who are using technology to create social impact at scale. 

For the Social Impact Quickfire, we partnered a 2021 awardee with a previous winner in the same industry, shooting off dozens of rapid-fire questions about their company, their why and the impact they make.

Brandon Ng, a 2021 winner of the Social Impact Awards, is co-founder and CEO of AMPD Energy, which employs energy storage systems to allow construction projects to be powered without diesel. We paired Brandon with Arthur Lam, a 2020 winner and the co-founder and CEO of Negawatt, which helps commercial properties consume less power thanks to its Negawatt Building Operation System.
