INSEAD Alumni Gain Insight Into The Business Of Affordable Internet

It is good to rub and polish our brain against that of others. – Michel Eyquem de Montaigne (1533 – 1592, French Renaissance philosopher and writer)

In the spirit of sharing knowledge and building strong partnerships, we recently hosted INSEAD alumni at our offices in Singapore. Both Christian Patouraux and our Board Chairman James Gould are alumni of INSEAD’s MBA course, so it was a pleasure for Kacific to give back to the international business school.

The evening was a great success, with visitors gaining an inside view into our plans, progress, and technologies. Christian shared the steps that led to founding and growing Kacific as a company. Again, strong partnerships stood out as an important foundation to the company. A core team of Kacific’s executives believed in the company vision and its solid business case. Chief Operating Officer Cyril Annarella, Chief Commercial Officer Michael Alex, Chief Technology Officer Bob Perpall and Board Chairman James Gould all brought their respective expertise to drive Kacific forward in the company’s early stages.

Conversations were also sparked about business purpose. For Kacific, the desire to make a rapid and lasting difference to the people of the Pacific and South East Asia through internet connectivity, is a driving force behind our work. Our work with customers in the Pacific Islands and South East Asia to date has proven; business models that bring social good into their purpose and strategy can produce solutions which are both beneficial and affordable for the market and sustainably profitable for the company.

Thank you to the INSEAD Alumni Network for an inspiring night.
