Start-ups disrupting the financial services, health care and commerce industries are among the best to work for in Singapore, according to a new study from LinkedIn.
Fintech, telehealth and e-commerce start-ups dominated the professional networking site's list of 15 "Top Start-ups 2021" due to their perceived success in navigating the pandemic and recording continued growth and demand.
To form the list, LinkedIn drew on in-house data collected between July 2020 and June 2021, measuring start-ups on four pillars — employment growth, engagement, job interest and attraction of top talent. To be eligible, companies had to be headquartered within Singapore, have 50 or more employees, and be seven years or younger at the time of calculation.
The company said the rankings should help employees identify the city-state's top emerging companies and those with the greatest potential employment opportunities.
"The LinkedIn Top Startups list spotlights startups in Singapore which are leading the way across industries such as fintech, health care, e-commerce, automotive and real estate," said Chris Anderson, managing editor for Asia at LinkedIn News.
"We hope the list will serve as a signpost for professionals to identify emerging start-ups to work for and the roles that will be in demand, so they can equip themselves with the necessary skills," he added.
