19 Jun 2017 – The French Chamber of Commerce in Singapore recently conducted a survey to identify feedbacks and needs from French entrepreneurs in Singapore.
Our goal was to better understand entrepreneurs’ priorities in order for us to continue to support at best French start-ups in their development since they are more and more numerous in Singapore (over 300).
105 entrepreneurs took part in the survey (80% being Members) and we are pleased to share with you some quick figures!
- Entrepreneur Snapshot in Singapore:
- 50% are Permanent Residents.
- The majority works for both BtoB or BtoC sectors
- 20% of the respondents are in the tech industry.
They join the French Chamber to have an access to the business community, gain visibility, get connected with other companies and receive support for their development.
Respondents highly value our 2 programs that support entrepreneurs (Mentoring Programme and Business Accelerator Lab) as well as access to the community and insights from meetings/conferences.
Key priorities for start-ups are access to Business Angels, more Business matching opportunities with MNCs or between start-ups and an easier access to regional French Chambers to develop their business outside Singapore.
