After digesting (partly) the ICM Masterplan and various ideas suggested for the Startup Ecosystem, these are my thoughts below. I will try to keep this brief. If you have questions about any of it, please email me (it's been a long week). This post will be updated along the way (beta).
Mentor Quality (SEA) - 4
Infrastructure - 4
Regulation/Policies - 4
Market Size (Platform/Distribution) - 2
Monetization (Payments) - 4
Capital - 2
Exit (IPO) - 1
Media - 2
- With the one unified entity (privately led with government support), government resources will be allocated as quickly and efficiently as possible.
- Collapse all IDE grants, initiatives, funding, subsidies under one roof. Rewire all government grants and funding systems.
- A central resource for programs, education, travel subsidies for founders and mentors to and from target markets.
Great intention and a large budget. Too many cooks (spread too thin).
It is not working as best as we want it too. It can be improved. We can achieve (sorry if it is a bit cheesy).
Happy National Day!
- The End -
p.s. love to hear your thoughts, there are ways to fix the 1 & 2 ratings, if you want to know more or how email me.
