Here’s the latest installment of our country-by-country top-funded startups series – Singapore.
As Singapore’s startup ecosystem grows, we have seen some new entries in this list in relation to the beginning of last year – most notably, GrabTaxi’s, that reached a total disclosed funding of US$680 million with an impressive haul of a US$350 million series E. Impressive funding rounds for 2015 have included a US$129 million series D for PropertyGuru, a US$82 million series C for M-Daq, and a US$56 million series A for Antuit.
It’s interesting, but perhaps not surprising, to see ecommerce companies dominate the list with five representatives. A healthy mix of other verticals like fintech, adtech, big data, social marketing, and enterprise solutions, highlight Singapore entrepreneurs’ and investors’ tendency to go largely with software-based companies.
