Singapore is often called “Asia’s Silicon Valley” and indeed the small city state has one of the most creative and entrepreneurial population. In fact, 40% of all start-up acquisitions in the Southeast Asian region are happening in Singapore. The city state is ranked seventh in the world on the Global Innovation Index. Pursuing a vision to become a “Smart Nation”, Singapore’s government has committed billions of dollars to spur the country's research and development (R&D) capabilities, enterprise innovation, and entrepreneurship. Singapore’s hospitable environment for start-ups has attracted companies from all over the world. Various accelerators and incubators have further enriched the mix and dynamics of the ecosystem.
