R E S E A R C H B A C K G R O U N D 235 responses from startups were collected, with more than half (55%) coming from founders and co-founders. Most respondents were from early-stage startups (70%), almost half of which (48%) employed five or fewer staff.

Of those who aren’t currently selling abroad, almost half (49%) intend to go global within the next year. More than a third (35%) of startups launched within the past year are already selling internationally. 60% 49% 35% Yet, only 36% of startups believe that they could have started their businesses from Singapore as little as five years ago.

S T A R T U P S N O L O N G E R N E E D T O R E I N V E N T T H E W H E E L By automating some of the most resource-intensive parts of building a business, the “startup stack” is helping entrepreneurs reallocate engineering time and focus on their core product: Less than 12% have built their own servers or data storage. Less than 10% have built their own payments infrastructure. Less than 9% have built their own team communication tools. Less than 8% have built their own security and anti-fraud systems. 12% 10% 9% 8%
  10. 10. At GovTech, we are focused on building and scaling projects, while keeping a small, efficient team. This approach has allowed us to move quickly to launch new services to meet Singapore’s needs, such as Parking.sg and Beeline. Using cloud services allows us to stop wasting time on solved problems, and instead focus on delivering our actual value.
