DBS Sparks X Deliveroo

Current activity: Binge watching SPARKS mini-series by DBS with Deliveroo

DBS Sparks

Remember the social enterprise project I have pitched with my partner back in 2013? Starting a business is all made possible to execute with DBS and its banker. I am now watching the SPARKS mini-series to understand more on the life of a banker and how they make a decision on a good project to fund.

Sparks, by DBS, is an industry-first mini-series that follows a group of young bankers as they navigate work and personal lives. Inspired by true stories, they challenge the status quo to go above and beyond when solving unusual client challenges. Through this mini-series, DBS hopes to convey the true meaning of banking and to challenge the perception that banking is only about transactions.

Episode synopsis

In this pilot, Claire Lee, a relationship manager, is introduced to cocky, Oxford-educated Jasper Wu, her new colleague. Sparks fly when they meet. A reluctant Claire is asked to show Jasper around, and then to visit a potential client together. https://youtu.be/IWjYgE09GqQ

A potential client, Lindsay, is in a predicament. Claire and Jasper get to know each other a little better and evaluate Lindsay’s plan with the rest of the team. Will they manage to successfully solve Lindsay’s issue? https://youtu.be/mwA6G4nPla4

The team manages to help Lindsay secure her loan, but an unforeseen development throws them off and tests them further. The young bankers hatch a plan to solve the new issue, but with a big player in the way, will they be able to win over their community? https://youtu.be/SZY5QT4UNSU

A new boss and an old acquaintance set Team DBS on a new mission. When an unexpected situation tests their mettle, they must dig deep and find their worth. https://youtu.be/02JmWLfkVlU

An impossible decision threatens to tear the bankers apart. And in their quest for the ultimate solution, they found something more valuable than they ever imagined. https://youtu.be/jmBxTGd4r60

The bankers embark on an incredible journey. Together, they challenge traditions and work to change the future of an entire village. Will they prevail? https://go.dbs.com/sparks-6
