Entrepreneurship

Singapore - Sep 23, 2013

Singapore 09162013

Summary

Start-up friendly legislation, top-notch tech talent, and geographic proximity to major Asian markets such as China, India, Indonesia, and Malaysia, are just some the reasons that Singapore has the potential to become the central start-up ecosystem of Asia. Singapore’s unique geographical position at the heart of Asia provides a fertile environment for entrepreneurs to start, grow, and scale their businesses, not only in Asia, but globally. The Singaporean government has created an extremely efficient business infrastructure in which red tape and bureaucracy are rare, earning the country the #1 spot in the World Bank’s "Ease of Doing Business" rankings. The attractive business environment has resulted in the continuous inflow of investment and wealth into Singapore, which in turn has created access to capital for Singaporean start-ups.

Chicago Booth invites you to join us in Singapore for a discussion with Booth alumni and start-up professionals who will share their expertise and perspectives on the current environment. Hear their take on the future of entrepreneurship in the region.
