David’s spent his career with one leg in the corporate world and one leg in the startup world.
After 12 years working throughout Asia and Europe in various functions for multinational corporations, he wanted to explore his passion for additive manufacturing.
During a sabbatical year he authored the science-fiction novel, Complexity is Free, on the future impact of 3d-printing and developed scenarios and strategies for businesses in the 3d-printing space. At the same time he co-founded Sendinaden, a 3d-printed wearables devices startup.
Today he is the co-CEO of Covestro’s continuous fiber reinforced thermoplastics composites business, a startup within a multinational company.
Vivian wanted to be an actress, so paradoxically she spent the last decade working in Supply Chain, Human Resources and Training in China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, India and Germany.
In the process she discovered a love for facilitating entrepreneurship and helping entrepreneurs grow alongside their businesses.
In 2015 she co-founded Sendinaden, a 3d-printed wearable devices startup, and helped Sendinaden go through Bayer’s digital health startup incubator in Berlin. In 2017 she founded Vivaciously, a consultancy aimed at facilitating themed startup incubators, accelerators and communities together with multinational corporations.
Today, on behalf of Bayer, Vivaciously drives the Grants4Apps Shanghai startup incubator.
Graduated with Bachelor of Science with Honours and Masters in Human Nutrition in New Zealand. She is a NZ Registered Dietitian, trained and worked in New Zealand hospitals, and is also an Accredited Dietitian of Singapore with the Singapore Nutrition & Dietetics Association (SNDA). She was a Lecturer at Temasek Polytechnic, before returning to clinical dietetics at Alexandra Hospital. She was visiting dietitian to Institute of Mental Health for > 3 years. Gladys is currently a full lecturer of School of Medicine, Faculty of Health Sciences, Flinders University, Australia. She is a Affiliate member of the Foodservice Consultants Society International (FCSI). Gladys oversees the clinical dietetic services and is consultant to the Foodservice dept.
She was a Council Member of the Diabetic Society of Singapore (DSS) and the Singapore Association of the Study of Diabetes (SASO) for numerous years. She has been an active member of the Singapore Nutrition & Dietetics Association (SNDA) and served as President and Treasurer on various periods. Gladys has delivered numerous professional and public talks and workshops relating to a wide variety of nutrition-related topics. She has special interest in diabetes management, disease-risk prevention education for the community and medical education for the healthcare professional. In recent years, she has become more involved in pedagogical frameworks, e-Learning and interactive/social mediums as a means of communication to the patients and public at large.
Dr. Hossein Rezai
Director, Web Structures
Dr Hossein Rezai has come a long way from when he first redesigned a toy car when he was just five years old. He was awarded a PhD in 1985 for his work on reinforced and pre-stressed concrete structures and proceeded to pursue his research interest on a post-doctorate research programme. He founded Web Structures in August 1996 to practise his passion for applied engineering design and realisation of many impressive structures in over 26 countries. Dr Rezai is one of the initiators of the concept of fusion engineering, which reconciles the seemingly contradictory agendas of good design with cost efficiency.
Dr. Lionel T Dean
Industrial Designer , FutureFactories Studio
Product Artist Lionel Theodore Dean sits at the intersection of art, craft and design challenging traditional boundaries and definitions of practice. He employs the virtual realm as a creative playground where time plays a part and artefacts exist with past and future states. This is a space in which ephemeral designs exist beyond the physical constraints of material or process. The resulting artefacts are at once familiar and yet strange, exhibiting formal structure while defying the patterns and logic associated with industrialisation: the flora and forna of an alien landscape.
FutureFactories Studio founded by Dean in 2002 is a creative practice focused exclusively on 3D printing. It has yielded a string of iconic designs ranging from gallery pieces to retail products for well-known manufacturers. The significance of the work is perhaps illustrated by acquisitions by MoMA, The Museum for Modern Art in New York and DHUB, Design Museum Barcelona for their respective permanent collections. In 2008 the MoMA piece was included in a ‘Highlights Collection’ of the Museum’s 250 most significant acquisitions since 1980.
Founder, Chloé Rutzerveld Food & Concept Design
Chloé Rutzerveld is a critical food designer who explores and challenges food production and consumption. She is fascinated by nature, the human body and the strange relationship people have with food.
After she graduated Cum Laude from the Eindhoven University of Technology in 2014, she started her own studio as Food and Concept Designer. Her work is interdisciplinary and a direct response to the things she questions or is fascinated about. By combining aspects of design, science and technology she thinks up new ways to make our food more efficient, healthy and sustainable. She communicates her ideas through speculative design probes, workshops and experimental dinners. By using food as medium, she makes new technologies and food related issues tangible for a wide variety of people, resulting in more understanding and in-depth discussions.
Next to self-initiated work, Chloé does commissioned projects and consultancy work. She also lectures about her work and the future of food.

Founder, Elements Lab
Javier G. Fernandez
Assistant Professor, SUTD
Javier’s research at SUTD is focused on the broad study, development, and application of biological materials in science and technology. In 2014 he was awarded the world’s most outstanding young researcher in materials science by the Bayer Foundation. He has been also awarded with the Zwick Science Award for his studies on Mechanical Testing, and best PhD thesis at the University of Barcelona for studies in the use of biopolymers in Microelectronicsand Biomedicine.
After his Ph.D, Javier moved to MIT, where he developed the “Micro-Masonry”, a technology to assemble artificial organs and recognized as “breakthrough in tissue engineering” (CNET). Later, he moved to the Wyss Institute at Harvard University, where he designed and made “Shrilk“, a compostable and biocompatible material inspired by the insect cuticle. Shrilk is referred, for example, to as “one of the materials that will change the future of manufacturing” (Scientific American), a “Supermaterial” (National Geographic), and has been chosen (with graphene) one of the “five material that could change the word” (The Guardian).
Javier regularly collaborates with some of the most important international media outlets. His opinions and views on scientific issues and environmental policies have been, for example, covered in personal interviews, documentaries, and articles of National Geographic, BBC, PBS, FOX, Euronews, Discovery Channel, The Guardian, Huffington Post, Scientific American…

Professor Schroepfer’s work investigates the increasingly complex relationship between design and technology in architecture. His research and design projects relate to advances in environmental strategies, materials, structure and form, performance and energy, computer simulation and modelling, digital fabrication and building processes. He has been recognized as a creative leader in the industry and sought-after as a keynote speaker at international conferences, symposiums and workshops.
CEO and Co-Founder, Bermat
Matteo Bertezzolo is the founder and CEO of Bermat, an Italian startup that was set up in 2015 with business in the automotive field. He was a business lawyer since 2002 and 3 years ago, he decided to change his job and realize his idea on the personalization of cars.
