Having lived both in Hong Kong and Singapore, perhaps this is one of the most often asked question: Which is better, Hong Kong or Singapore? You’ll find loads of blogs and banter, even charts and lists drilling down to which city is better. To me, it’s really whether you like durians or stinky tofu.
When we were working on the Oddup Hong Kong Ecosystem Report and Oddup Singapore Ecosystem Report, this question came up again. So which is better? Hong Kong or Singapore? So this is how it all began. We mulled and stewed over it, and drew out the entire picture of the startup ecosystems in Hong Kong and Singapore the way we saw it. The opportunities, the deals, the exits, the who’s who, the entrepreneurs, the investors, the regulators, and of course – the coffee.
When looking at the ecosystem, we need to look at without any bias.
