Any mention of Singapore and business has to take into account the policies of the Singaporean government. In the case of entrepreneurs, the government has taken its foot off the brake and is stepping firmly on the gas. Business Class spoke with Paul Meyers of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) on the shifts that now make Singapore the entrepreneurial center of SE Asia.

 

Meyers is a serial entrepreneur and has been working on the digital transformation of SE Asia since the late 90’s. Now, as an adviser on early stage investment for the Asian Development Bank, he is seeing changes take hold.

 

He notes that the government’s decision to make things easy for both start-ups and investors, attracts companies and investment from around the globe. He feels that being the “go-to location” for entrepreneurs in SE Asia, “is a way to keep Singapore relevant.”

 

The interview was conducted by Dick Drobnick, Director of the USC IBEAR MBA Program.
