Singapore - A Real Home Away from Home
Fast-forward to several years later, among family and close friends from Singapore, there is no place like home than this tiny red dot.
A WELCOMING HOME FOR BUSINESSES
Singapore works hard on attracting high-quality enterprises. Resultantly, many have decided to set up their regional headquarters, data centres and engineering hubs here. The presence of these multinational companies coupled with a bustling local startup scene, which continues to get more innovative by the year, provide a firm foundation for a vibrant tech industry.
AN INCLUSIVE HOME FOR TECH PROFESSIONALS
In both examples, emerging technologies have enabled them to do more and better work faster. However, even as automation enables them to express their ideas in new ways, education appears to be the common factor that drives future success.
But Singapore’s appeal to tech professionals from around the world is not all work. While career opportunities matter, it is the hard to quantify charm that wins hearts and minds of many professionals in data, artificial intelligence and health over other tech hubs.
Despite being at the centre of the most complex continent in the world, the city is able to welcome and absorb every culture. My personal experience is one good example. Even though I came from a very different part of the world, I have found great friends, wise mentors and my life partner – among locals. My personal ties have made this city more than just a place to stay for me.
