Some startup company are consider as low-profile but they are run by staff with high-driven personality, and they have a cutting edge innovation or flexible services that most establish can't have, probably due to different working culture and systematic. But most startup will definitely have cashflow problem and inability to compete against other competitors with strong backing.

Most MNC will choose to buy over them to expand their services. Likewise, you will definitely proach talented staff to join your company right? GroupOn is an example.

When you are small and when you're not the major stockholder, you can't say crap when MNC convinced the major stockholders to sell the company.

Furthermore, some small companies understand that their success is only temporary before competition comes, then small size can't fight. Might as well quit while ahead.

Well, acquisitions in singapore don't hit the few hundred million to billion dollars like what we see in the US/Europe.

YP tried to buy over my friend's exhibition co for SGD20 mil and the bosses didn't even bother with YP.

It's in the American corporate culture for decades that they buy their way into profitability. They look out for companies that can prove to be profitable and buy them up although sometimes they also buy out companies that can become a threat in future.


You have gain.

really depends... they can use bank as backups and pull off a big stunt and multiply. If all else fails, at most lugi to banks. some companies actually love being bought over by other companies cos you get a sum of money in your pocket, and you get paid with lesser risk, if all else fails, at most quit, go on a cooling period, then back into the game.

Depend on who is the financial backing. they cannot sue anyhow unless there a good reason lah, or it be a backfire strategy, laws is also existed to protect your business too.

It is not difficult for new startup to grow at first, if they need to expand, they must know how to attract potential clients and when is the best time to market your vertical services or products, like iPhone and Flash app.

Everyone like to think "start small, think big" will work for most of them, without the right people working for you even if you are friends, you are bound to failure. In fact, internal strife is a receipe for disaster.

Yes that is the way to big money. Aussie friend sold his 4 year old tech services company to S* for 12m at age 25.
