Finute Pte. Ltd. is the Major Partner and Sponsor for Singapore’s 2022 National Day Parade (NDP). In support of NDP 2022’s public engagement efforts, Finute developed a metaverse that allowed the public to celebrate Singapore’s birthday in an immersive manner. Over a short one month period, the metaverse has garnered over 60,000 sign-ups and participation.
Finute Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Winston Ng received the NDP Major Partner Award from Chief of Defence Force Lieutenant-General (LG) Melvyn Ong at the National Day Parade 2022 Appreciation Function held at the Gardens by the Bay.
"The metaverse developed by Finute enabled participants to immerse themselves in a virtual world based on Singapore and experience what it is like to drive military platforms, parachute out of a moving aircraft, and fly a fighter jet," Mr. Ng said.
"Finute is honoured to be the Major Partner for the 2022 National Day Parade. This year, Finute introduced the National Day Parade event in the Lion City metaverse which allows Singaporeans to take part in the virtual activities and celebrate our nation's birthday in an engaging manner," the chief executive elaborated.
Accompanying Mr. Ng at the appreciation function was the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Zachary Lim.
"I am proud of the contributions of our Creators Network which led the event's success. I express my heartfelt gratitude and sincerely thank our creators 'xstorm', 'FireTurbo', 'JJ', and 'Chocory' for their contributions to the NDP2022 Lion City metaverse hub," Mr. Ng said, referring to the usernames of the creators from the Finute Creators' Network who were involved in the development of the NDP2022 metaverse.
"The success of this event is also the fruit of our developers' work. One of our leading metaverse developers, Bryan Chan, worked tirelessly to ensure the Marina Bay skyline matched its real-life counterpart. It is not an easy feat."
Mr. Ng is the development chief for the Lion City metaverse and oversees a team of 6 whom work round the clock to deliver an immersive metaverse experience.
"Finute is determined in realizing its dream of creating Singapore's digital twin."
