BFI@SMU | Masterclass: Innovation through Co-Creation
Feb. 25, 2021

Matex International Limited was invited to participate in BFI@SMU Masterclass with topic on ‘Innovation through Co-Creation’ as a live case study to explore into the challenges and strategies for innovating in family business. 

Family businesses need to constantly innovate to build a lasting legacy. However, innovation is not the result of any individual genius, but a co-creative journey involving multiple stakeholders. As stewards to the family and the business, the next generation faces unique challenges as they orient to a new future while preserving their family roots.

The main speakers of the Masterclass are Professor Kenneth Goh (Academic Director, Business Families Institute, Singapore Management University, and Assistant Professor of Strategic Management, Lee Kong Chian School of Business) and Mr Dro Tan (Executive Director of Matex International Limited). 

Mr Dro Tan is appointed as Matex’s Executive Director since 2010. He is responsible for the Group’s business and projects to strengthen the company brand, product innovation and development. He oversees the design and expansion of the group’s buildings and infrastructures. He is also actively involved in the Group’s diversification projects that complement the Group’s core businesses. In addition, Mr Tan is Associate Council Member of the Textile and Fashion Federation (Singapore), a non-profit organization which helps Singapore’s textile and fashion industry and its members globalise.
