This interview wasn’t the first time I met Gillian Tee, co-founder and CEO of Homage.

Back in 2017, I attended a DBS ‘Digital Disruption for Impact’ event where Gillian, along with other social enterprise founders, talked about how technology and innovation have empowered them to scale their businesses.

Homage was a fresh recipient of DBS’ Social Enterprise Grant, which acted as its ‘launchpad’, giving the startup support in terms of business opportunities and capacity building.

In that same year, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong also lauded Homage for tapping on technology to match a pool of caregivers to ageing seniors in his 2017 National Day Rally speech.

Despite being a fledgling startup, the fact that Homage was mentioned in the speech was an absolute honour, said Gillian. They were being recognised, and it was like PM Lee gave them his “stamp” of approval.
