He further pointed out the importance of forward-thinking, a clear roadmap, and continuous research about data, noting, "the secret is we build a platform based on data!"
"It is also important to follow up with how people use devices. That will contribute to developing my digital platform as a founder and designing fast and innovative solutions for challenges. What is the point of devices if it is not making my life easier than before. Each entrepreneur has to think of five projects, create three prototypes and choose two of them to succussed."
