Top Startups in Singapore to Watch in 2019

Earlier, the ‘lack of an entrepreneurial culture’ has regularly been quoted as a barrier to growing startups in Singapore. Also, the high cost of living in Singapore regulated many locals towards “safer” jobs with MNCs.

Thanks to a thriving business economy, low taxation, and government grants,  Singapore now serves as a hotbed for startups and entrepreneurs with TEA above 10, double that of Germany and higher-ranked countries with sophisticated ecosystems like Israel and the UK.

Without further ado, here’s our list of the most interesting startups in Singapore to watch out for in 2019.
