Singapore's 20 hottest startups 2014

Here’s a look at the city’s biggest up-and-comers offering products and services ranging from an online marketplace to 3D printing technology to a cancer cell detection system.

Singapore Business Review sifted through over a hundred nominations submitted by founders, investors and industry observers in the search for startups worth watching over the next 12 months. The list of 20 hottest startups in Singapore is now on its third year and the selection process has become even more extensive.

The companies selected started operating from 2010 and were able to make their business flourish from initial funding that ranges from $47,500 to $9M. Some were spin-off companies from top local universities while a few were co-founded by expatriates.

Startups which made it to the list were arranged based on total funding generated to date. Find out how each is shaking up its sector’s norms with new innovations.

Erratum:

The printed version of the magazine erred in stating some information about startup Collegify.

The mistakes were corrected in this digital version.

Collegify was founded by Rohan Pasari and Stanley Chia Dingli with support from private angel investors Eric Tachibana and Alvin Low.

Pasari noted that the startup now has above $100,000 funding to-date on top of operational profits.
