In this new episode, I’m hosting Samir Chaibi, principal at Insignia Ventures, a Southeast Asia-only venture capital firm, based in Singapore. We are joined by Loris and Chloé, baby vc fellows.

Despite being an island nation inhabiting just 5.6 million people, Singapore has become one of the world’s leading centers for technological innovation, and the go-to place for entrepreneurs — big or small, local or international

Singapore has emerged as an economic and technological powerhouse in recent years. This diminutive Southeast Asian country has built a business positive environment that encourages international and Singapore tech startups to open, branch out and spread their wings; giving birth to several powerful unicorns, like Grab, Lazada and Razer along the way.

  1. Is Singapore a startup paradise ?
  2. What are the characteristics of the Singapore market ? I would love to have your view as a local on what happens there. What can we learn from this ecosystem ?
  3. What innovative policies, government subsidies, ease of starting businesses are set up to drive the success of the country in the region ?
  4. What role has the startup ecosystem played in Singapore's growth?

These are questions we are answering in this podcast,

Thanks all for listening,
