WITN: "On Paper, Singapore Shouldn't Have Done as Well as it Has"

Given Paul’s ability to get into fights even in sleepy towns like Camden, Maine, it’s lucky Sarah does the lion’s share of the travelling.

This week, she’s in Singapore – on a week-long trip to take the island’s entrepreneurial pulse and next week she’ll be returning to Jakarta to do similar there (hopefully, you’ve already sent in your questions for her special South-East Asia editions of Ask A VC).

You can read more about Sarah’s trip in a series of posts coming over the next few days, but first, with Paul safely back in the studio, we caught up via Skype to discuss some of the interesting startups she’s found so far – and also how Singapore’s colonial past and uber-efficient present has affected its entrepreneurial outlook.
