LTR - As the Group CEO of Paktor & GaiGai, Alex oversees online and offline matchmaking brands as well as the associated dating and image coaching businesses in Singapore, Taiwan, Malaysia, and Hong Kong. GaiGai was started for singles to meet in casual settings without the hours of swiping and chatting. Prior to starting GaiGai, Alex worked as an investment analyst at hedge fund Lionport Capital in Singapore. He graduated with a double degree in Accounting and Business Management. Alex mentioned that localisation is important in dating apps. Paktor's local branding is through the use of stickers and gifts to engage local singles. Paktor also partners with local businesses including tourist attractions.
LTR stands for Love, Technology, Relationships and the online conference covers the Internet dating and Online Social Communities space. It is for members of IDEA and OSCA.
