Fin­tech and prop­erty dom­i­nate 2017 list

This year’s crop of hottest star­tups dou­bled the av­er­age fund­ing of 2016’s list to $3.2m.

Singapore Business Review - - SINGAPORE’S HOTTEST STARTUPS 2017 -

This is our sixth edi­tion of the hottest star­tups is­sue where we present no­table and up-and-com­ing local star­tups. To com­pile the list, we first looked at the weekly star­tups we fea­ture on our web­site, sbr.com.sg, and we then fil­tered by amount of fund­ing raised. We do not in­clude star­tups where fund­ing is not dis­closed, and the com­pa­nies must have formed in the last three years. Then we checked our list with eight in­dus­try play­ers to weed out any com­pa­nies that do not make the grade. This year’s hottest star­tups av­er­age fund­ing was $3.2m com­pared to $1.5m last year.

We don’t claim that this is the most com­pre­hen­sive list, and whilst we have tried to ver­ify fund­ing quan­tums, we can­not ver­ify all amounts de­clared. Nev­er­the­less, we feel this list rep­re­sents the most talked about star­tups in Sin­ga­pore. En­joy the read and send feed­back to re­search@charl­ton­media­mail.com.
