To connect enterprises all across Asia and provide them with a platform to showcase their businesses and themselves, BlackStorm Consulting (BSC) launched the BlackStorm Virtual Launchpad (BVL) as a one-stop platform where companies can engage in weekly activities and hear from like-minded industrial players. BlackStorm Consulting is a trusted business scaler specialising in CSO-As-A-Service, Business Building and Corporate Advisor in Southeast Asia. In May 2020, BSC launched Virtual Business Launchpad (VBL). The first edition was a success, attracting enterprises from 3 continents to subscribe as its inaugural batch of Stormers, a title BlackStorm Consulting proudly confers to its partners with a view of the future.
COVID-19 presented an unprecedented challenge to businesses seeking to expand their global footprint. A new digital normal can be seen emerging from the disruption to regular routines and behaviours, as business owners are restricted from travelling and gathering outside. Many businesses have started to operate remotely while dispatching their employees to attend courses and network online. Likewise, employees and entrepreneurs have begun to look online for educational courses and business insights to upgrade themselves. Given the virtual manner in which BlackStorm Virtual Launchpad activities will be conducted, participants are no longer limited by geographic boundaries. The platform promotes cross-vertical and cross-functional engagements between participants to seek synergies that help achieve each parties’ objectives at the fastest speed.
Thomas Tsao, CEO of CEREC Asia and one of the first batch of Stormers, had this to say,
For this latest edition, the Virtual Launchpad series will splinter into three programmes:
(1) Virtual Business Launchpad (VBL) for Businesses looking to accelerate their expansion,
(2) Virtual Entrepreneur Launchpad (VEL) for early or budding Entrepreneurs,
(3) Virtual Manager Launchpad (VML) for mid-to top-level Management honing their expertise.
