Touted as the unofficial capital of Asia, Singapore is maturing as a regional entrepreneurial hub. The country has been singled out for its potential to turn into Asia’s Silicon Valley with an increasing number of technology enterprises, Internet start-ups, venture capitalists and incubators establishing a presence in Singapore.
