Put simply, Handshakes is an application that offers an at-a-glance view of the connections between individuals and companies, as well as ownership checks for those who need them (such as lawyers and accountants). “Though not all our contributions make the news, we are pleased that they do make a difference to society,” says 32-year-old Daryl Neo, who is the company’s founding director and CEO. “It’s now easier to discover whom you can trust and do business with.” Looking out for the community and, above all, being kind are just some of the lessons he learned from being “raised by angels”—his parents. He also strives to end the day better than it started. His next goal, which involves improving Handshakes’ core artificial intelligence technology to cover information contained within a company, will propel the platform and its users further into the future.
