KNOWLEDGE BASE Singapore Demographics And Culture



Singapore is often considered a good option for global expansion from the West because it acts as a gateway to other Asian markets.  And though there are many aspects of Singapore that feel 'Western', there are important differences that you may want to consider before you start doing business there. When you first spend some time getting to know the people and the culture, you can get a better sense for how your product or service will resonate with them. You can also determine any adjustments you might need to make to lead to your expansion success. 

What more do you need to know about the people before you land in Singapore? This understanding will inform your decisions around how you interact, your go-to-market strategy, and any product localization that may be required.
