Start-up growth leads and booming increase of venture capital in Singapore

Vertex Ventures and two other venture companies in Singapore have closed this month with the largest fund yet after the completion of their fundraising activities. Investors are searching for an alternative to the US and China investing opportunities and are finding them in Singapore.

The country's government is applying continuous efforts to bring investors and venture capitals to Singapore by minimising red tape levels, increasing the protection of intellectual property rights and allocating government funds towards seed capital and early-stage financing. According to the KPMG report, Venture Pulse Q3 2017, the US is still leading the start-ups market and venture capitals, however Singapore is not far behind.
