“In the USA alone, over 700,000 companies shut down every year. In 2019, prior to the pandemic, 928,000 out of the 1.04 million newly established companies had shuttered.” (U.S. Small Business Administration, 2021)

Can you briefly introduce your company?

Any highlights on your recent announcement to share?

We recently launched our pitch deck analytics to perform an evidence-driven assessment in order to diminish investing decisions clouded by prejudices or biases, as well as safeguarding founders from bad actors who would breach confidentiality by irresponsibly sharing their fundraising pitch decks with competing businesses.


In addition, we’re also in the midst of planning our first virtual preseed startup competition, taking place in the Q4 2022, to groom world-class founders solving real-world problems aligning with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.

Can you share more insights on your solutions offerings?

As a business intelligence solution, our pitch deck analytics focus on analyzing the business components and fundability of fundraising pitch decks instead of reporting the number of shares, analyzing presentation interactivity, evaluating creative and template design, and so on.


Moreover, our on-demand pitch deck analytics is powered by industry comparison benchmarks, real market data, and proven frameworks to help founders foster commercial viability and competitive differentiation by guiding them to enhance their business offerings.


Powered by our roiquant solutions, our virtual preseed startup competition will allow participants to safely fail, learn, innovatively prototype, and pivot/pitch their ideas throughout the qualifying, semi-final, and final rounds.


Leading up to the final round, the top 30 finalists shall demo and pitch to a panel of judges (serial founders and investors).


After evaluation, we will announce the 3 winners and reward them with our equity-free cash prize money.


  • 5-figure cash prize for the first place and second place winners


  • 4-figure cash prize for the third-place winner

What is the best thing about your company that people might not know about?

Our bootstrapping company enjoys low operating expenses (burn rate) because:


  • We’re headquartered in a small oil-rich country, and so we benefit from relatively low corporate income tax (18.5% on a threshold basis) and no capital gains tax, as well as no individual taxation, such as personal income, net wealth/worth, inheritance/estate, capital gains, capital duty, payroll, and social security taxes.


  • Importantly, pioneer industry companies and companies with revenue that does not exceed SGD $1 million are exempt from corporate tax.


  • Our government launched an internship program to train fresh graduates for the job market by subsidizing the salary of interns hired by companies for 18 months, which helped us groom our homegrown talents with lean budgeting to compete with our direct international competitors.
