In land-scarce countries like Singapore, large areas being set aside for farming would simply be an inefficient use of resources. But where there is a will, there is a way. Archisen founders Sven Yeo and Vincent Wei have come up with a tech-enabled solution.
Nanyang Technological University (NTU) graduate Sven met co-founder Vincent, who was from the National University of Singapore (NUS), when they took part in Small World Group, a sustainable technology incubator, back in 2011.
