Driving Principles

Right First, Fast Later

In the long-term scheme of things, it doesn't matter who came first; instead, who did things the right way. Singapore's economic and fintech policies are a unique example of balancing social welfare with economic development.


System of economics to let market forces define the majority of outcomes, while a progressive government develops the broader structure of guidelines and policy investments to enable innovation and competition to develop further.

Garden Innovation

Unlike the international model of advocating disruption, Singapore practices a conciliatory approach of picking vital focus areas of innovation & then providing all possible resources to nurture them like a compassionate gardener.

Cred Card

Proudly collaborating with the best fintech partners in the ecosystem

brought together to achieve a common goal.

About Us

The fintech journey of Singapore has been a story of relentless pursuit of excellence to build a global financial service hub with limited means and lots of aspirations. The slogan “Dream big. Start small. Move fast” brought together regulators, startups, investors, corporates and everyone else to achieve a common goal. In 2020, the fintech community in Singapore came together to create a not for profit grassroots movement called, Fintech Nation , to bring the journey of Singapore to the world and enable the ecosystem to build for the future. ------------------------------------------------------ Key Milestones Aug 2022 - Launch of Fintech65™ March 2022 - Launch of Fintech Nation Fund November 2020 - Launch of First Singapore Fintech Nation Book July 2020 - Launch of Fintech Nation Cred Cards
