There's another option of buying over shelved entities actually, which will remove that 2 years restriction if it's been operating on a small scale basis. I am always wary of reputation though, it's never an option for me. Not now at least.

KSL, You've sorta sum up my sentiments here. In a way, SPRING is indeed not supportive of Startups and was never interested in Startups in the first place.

A matter of fact, Australian law is not applicable in Singapore even though both are British-based. Like others, I advise you to re-read your employment contract because I sincerely do not believe in such an opportunity. My life-mentor runs an executive search company and I have never heard such a t...

the learning for people like me, who are living in singapore, is to amass as many credit cards as possible whilst one is still an employee. The worst advice to offer is using personal credit cards for business purposes. Many do this, and that's also why many are in deep wells being caught on both e...

Your top choice will be... 1. Family/Friends 2. Angel investors. As much as SPRING or most fundings are concerned, their definition of "Startups" and ours differ. I have never heard of any company that is under 2 years old that actually secured fundings from SPRING. Maybe there are a very tiny fract...

For many year, China and a few other countries were slammed for pollution and depletion of nature reserves. It was the first time this year, that someone actually fought back and mentioned one of the facts, many of these factories tapping natural supplies are foreign own companies.

Haven't bought it... and I'm just being honest. Even without this film, watching Nat Geo and Discovery can be "scary" enough about global warming and such.

I admire his guts to take it up to them... but the manner he does it is nothing more like a hooligan.
