2022 | StartupBlink View the Global Startup Map p. 78 Startup Ecosystem Overview Singapore is a model for innovation and continues the pattern of a relatively small country massively over-performing and creating regional impact as an open and powerful Asian hub. Singapore’s favorable tax legislation and ease of doing business are attracting massive ecosystem investment. It is no wonder that the country keeps on producing billion dollar valuations for its startups. The dominance of Grab is a great example of how Singapore is becoming the headquarters of Asian activities for leading startups. The Singapore ecosystem boasts a growing number of accelerators and support networks. For instance, Enterprise Singapore has accelerator programs that allow early stage startups to access financial aid and business loans, while initiatives such as Startup SG promote Singapore’s startup ecosystem. On top of this, the country’s universities are involved in the startup scene, not only by training a highly qualified workforce for the R&D sector, but also in connecting programs to startups and encouraging entrepreneurship on campuses. Because Singapore has a small market and population, its ecosystem’s growth depends on scaling overseas. This aspect gives the ecosystem a unique global perspective from the start and helps the country position itself as a regional hub. Singapore’s public sector is highly supportive of the startup ecosystem, but the country should be careful not to turn this support into a dependency. Moreover, attracting talent and maintaining competitiveness on a global scale should also be focal points for Singapore. Initiatives such as the Entrepreneur Pass (EntrePass) could become instrumental in keeping up with the high demand for a qualified workforce. Considering the country's stability and infrastructure, it is no wonder that Singapore has become a regional entry point for expansion to the Asian market.
