We are expanding to Asia
Housing over 50% of world’s population and around 40% of regional wealth, Asia became a leading powerhouse for start-up activity. With major focus on tech and scalability to serve large amounts of end-users and underdeveloped areas, increase cross-industry and product integration, innovate on environmental conservation solutions, Asian start-ups currently constitutes over 80% of unicorn enterprises.
Following mostly in-country funded start-up ecosystem in China, Southeast Asian countries and governments have been ramping up their efforts to secure a seat at the table as early as possible. Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand and Singapore have been leading the pack of ASEAN countries due to ease of tech adoption by large numbers, government incentivization schemes, and friendly attitudes towards foreign direct investments.
Singapore’s strategic location, small population, diverse background, economic strength and well-developed regional as well as international relations enabled the country to create a highly inclusive start-up ecosystem within a very short period of time. Coupled with a favourable tax regime and funding support through public and private institutions including but not limited to SG Enterprise, Temasek and GIC, Singapore-based start-ups managed to secure over 30% of start-up fundraising deals in Southeast Asia in last couple of years.
Since inception, Entrepreneur Hub managed to help over 250 early stage-companies and create a strong track record within Europe, mainly Scandinavia. We believe it is time to expand to Asia though Singapore and embark on a journey to contribute to Asian start-up ecosystem with our knowledge, networks and values.
