Growth Dynamics of High-Tech Start-ups in Singapore: A Longitudinal Study

Singapore is home to a large and ever-growing pool of technology startups, thanks in part to the nation's widely-lauded ecosystem for entrepreneurship. The fast-changing landscape amplifies the complexities of startup growth dynamics, making them difficult to grasp.

The NUS Entrepreneurship Centre (NEC) was awarded a research grant by the National Research Foundation to conduct a study on high-tech startups in Singapore. The results from this two-year study, carried out between 2015 and 2017, are detailed in a research report now available for download.
