“Why to not not start a startup”

- Paul Graham

Story

From the moment of its inception, it was very clear to our founders what e27 had set out to do; give every startup a winning chance! What started out as a blog to keep track of the startups sprouting in Singapore has continued to evolve with time to ensure that we could continue to provide the relevant tools and resources to the tech ecosystem in Asia.

We know it’s hard to build a successful business, and this is compounded when you have to strike out alone. With e27 you will be plugged into a community of people who can become mentors, partners, investors, colleagues, and customers. Now you can come to a place where you find news, community events, talent, and funding! Basically everything you need to build a billion-dollar company.

Meaning of e27

The "e" stands for entrepreneurs, the crazy bunch of us working towards groundbreaking innovations. Also, we are in the digital industry! Our founders were inspired by an article that Paul Graham had written “Why to not not start a startup” and he mentioned that 27 was the median age of entrepreneurs. Thus, e27 was born in 2007.
