调查:资金、连接性和市场覆盖表现优异 本地起步公司生态系统亚洲排第五名

Lianhe Zaobao 根据最新发布的2021年《全球起步公司生态系统报告》,新加坡在亚洲和全球排名跟去年一样维持不变,亚洲排第五名,全球排第17名。 这项研究由国际创业调查公司Startup Genome牵头,并与全球创业网络(GEN)和本地的创业行动社群(Action Community for Entrepreneurship,简称ACE)合作完成。 报告主要根据绩效、资金、连接性、市场覆盖率、知识和人才等六个因素,给各城市评分和排名,今年报告涵盖了全球300万多家公司、近300个生态系统的数据,以及全球1万多名起步公司高管的调查。 对此,创业行动社群指出,我国政府已增加更多研发资金,如政府将通过“研究、创新与企业2025计划”,在未来五年投入250亿元,继续强化和深化我国的创新和研发能力。 创业行动社群说:“报告凸显了全面发展我国起步公司生态系统中每一个参与者的重要性——从起步公司到企业,以至高等教育机构和投资者。一个强大、紧密联系的生态系统将为起步公司提供更好的共享平台,让它们能利用创意、资金或人才等各类资源。” 创业行动社群主席陈中表示,该协会将继续努力促进知识和人才的无缝转移,以支持本地起步公司,提高新加坡作为一个繁荣和具吸引力的起步公司生态系统的地位。 More

James has been very genuine to help in any way possible and is quick to do so. Constantly challenges us to think bigger and serves as our go-to sounding board for fund raising and other operational matters. Humble and approachable too despite the immense success he’s had with 55tuan.

He is both a great coach for founders, as well as a master tactician in execution, a combination that is rare and incredibly valuable to find in an investor.
