“Why to not not start a startup”

- Paul Graham

The Story

From the moment of inception, it was very clear to us we as e27 had set out to do: give every startup a winning chance.

What started out as a blog to keep track of Singapore’s sprouting startups in 2007, has continued to evolve with time to ensure that we could continue to provide the relevant tools and resources to Asia’s tech ecosystem.

We know it’s hard to build a successful business, and this is compounded when you have to strike out alone. With e27, we envision you plugged into a community of people who can become mentors, partners, investors, colleagues, and customers.

e27 is your go-to platform for news, community, events, talent, funding and more. Everything you need to build a billion-dollar company.

Welcome to the community.
