Singapore Exchange contemplates crowdfunding platform
30 Oct 2014: The Singapore Exchange (SGX) is considering a platform for start-ups and SMEs. According to a number of reports the SGX has created an internal team that is looking at setting up an equity crowdfunding platform. This could be a first for a major securities exchange. This alternative platform would enable a startup to raise its initial seed capital in a cost effective way, and then move to a more traditional IPO when the business matures.
