Derek Tan is the Chief Business Development Officer and Co-Founder of Viddsee, a video storytelling platform that leverages data and empowers the storyteller community. Viddsee was founded through his passion for filmmaking and expertise in engineering - where he sees potential in Asian storytelling. During his leadership, he has watched the company grow from Singapore-based, into other markets like Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines.He believes that sustaining the ecosystem for storytellers is key to growing the company and the region’s storytelling potential. This led to the development of other verticals in Viddsee including Viddsee Studios, Viddsee Labs, and Viddsee Talent Hub. Being a filmmaker himself, he believes that many Asian filmmakers are underrepresented - where this led to the launch of Viddsee Juree Awards, to give appreciation and recognition to filmmakers and aspiring creatives.
