Singapore Startup Ecosystem

Singapore is often referred to as the gateway to Asia. In Singapore, you can set up a business in any sector, and trade isn’t limited; add to that a stable currency, and you have the perfect environment for international trade. These factors, combined with massive investment in R&D from the Singapore government, have led the country to become one of Asia’s most prominent startup hubs. 

Due to its status as an international business hub, 59% of multinational corporations have offices in Singapore.

The country is a leader in the region for venture capital. The government played a key role in building the diverse startup ecosystem; they’ve co-invested with prominent VCs and created VC funds that support different sectors. There’s a current focus on growing the deep tech sector. 

According to a study by the World Bank Group, too much involvement from the government could also be a challenge in the future, as government support props up many companies that should have collapsed. Finding talent is another challenge for Singapore. There are strong educational institutions, but the talent pool isn’t wide enough, and employing foreign workers is a lengthy process.  

Startup Singapore estimates there are 4,646 startups in the city, with 1,056 active investors and 218 accelerators. The median seed round funding in Singapore is well above the global average. Some of the most valuable startups include Moglix, Carro, and Nium.

GrowthMentor was built upon the idea that every situation is unique, so generic courses and blog posts just don’t cut it sometimes.

To actually solve your issue you need to connect with someone who’s “been there done that” and have a back-and-forth conversation about the particular roadblock you are facing at this very moment.

Here are some tips.

  • Come into this with realistic expectations. They’re mentors, not magicians.
  • Ask your mentor if they’d be ok with you recording your screen with Loom
  • Give contextual information to help paint the picture of your current situation.
  • Growth mentors will be asking you lots of questions, answer them as openly as possible.
  • Don’t be afraid to push the boundaries of question-asking.
  • Be inquisitive. Stories are gold.
  • Don’t feel pressure, just relax.
  • Try to form mental patterns, especially if you speak with multiple mentors.
  • Embrace alternative views. Ask the mentors to challenge your assumptions.
  • Be friendly. If you’re likable, the mentors will be your biggest supporters (even after the call is over).

Use dynamic filters to find the perfect mentor for you with the right expertise, language, time zone, and availability you need.
