1/6By Invitation Only At Kilo Kitchen Duxton

A private dinner exclusive to 2019 honourees will first roll out at Kilo Kitchen, a hip restaurant co-founded by Gen.T 2018 honouree Javier Perez. The dining establishment first opened at Kallang before moving to its current space at the intersection of Duxton Hill and Duxton Road last December. 

The dinner will also be attended by the Gen.T Tribe—a group of industry experts who have helped to nominate and select this year's list of honourees. Within this casual and cosy setting, interesting conversations are sure to be had, and no doubt over a host of specially curated sharing plates by the restaurant's executive chef, Manel Valero.

2/6The Big Reveal

Since 2016, Generation T has recognised Singapore's most promising entrepreneurs, creative visionaries, influential innovators and disruptive talents to form the annual Gen.T List. So far, the list has included the likes of fashion designers, artists, restaurant owners, start-up stars and more. 

After months of preparation, the fourth edition of the prestigious Gen.T List will finally be revealed at our exclusive soirée on June 26. This year also marks the first time that we have compiled a regional list, featuring a total of 400 honourees from Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, China and the Philippines. 

In the meantime, let's see if you can guess who has made the cut this year based on these clues: 

  • This talented DJ and musician was the first Singaporean to play at international music festivals such as Ultra Miami and Tomorrowland.
  • This entrepreneur who's redefining the rules of the traditional telco industry.
  • This filmmaker, whose outstanding film won a prestigious prize at a major film festival in Switzerland last year. 
  • This urban farmer, whose start-up became the first to grow non-native crops such as strawberries, kale and edible flowers commercially, through controlled environment agriculture, vertical farming and hydroponics.

3/6Learning how to give back to society—and give back better

Is CSR really reserved only for bigger companies? Does it require big budgets? Should start-ups and small businesses start thinking about giving back to society? How do they even start? At this year's dinner, deputy director of the National Volunteer and Philanthropy Centre (NVPC), Quek Shiyun, will share with honourees the different ways smaller companies can endeavour to do so. NVPC will also be supporting Gen.T Singapore's CSR initiative this year, held in August in partnership with Fullerton Heritage and Reach Community Services, which will engage a select group of Gen.T honourees and benefiting at-risk youths.

4/6The high-octane after party at Kilo Lounge

To officially introduce the Gen.T 2019 honourees to the wider Gen.T community, an after-party at Kilo Lounge will take place after the welcome dinner. There, a special physical exhibition with the profiles of all 50 honourees will be unveiled.

DJ Ori will take charge of the decks and keep the dancefloor busy with his soulful deep-house beats all the way until 1am.

As a special treat for guests, there will be a special performance by one of our very own Gen.T 2019 honourees who will take centre stage during the after party.
