The Newsmaker: Singapore’s IT guru Sim Wong Hoo gears up for a comeback

SINGAPORE - Sim Wong Hoo is back. And when Singapore’s most elusive technopreneur gets himself back into the limelight, the reason can only be this: a new Creative product is on its way.   He is a household name in Singapore. After all, the founder of Creative Technology was the nation’s first whiz-kid to have challenged tech giants like Apple. The company was also one of the few local companies to be listed on Nasdaq. 

Even though the company voluntarily delisted itself from Nasdaq 10 years ago, it never stopped innovating.   In this episode of The Newsmaker, Mr Sim does a stock take of Creative Technology’s progress thus far, and shares his insights on the ups and downs the company faces.
