8 start-ups in Asia to lookout for

Here’s the latest round-up of Asian worth looking out for.

1) (Singapore): Launched in 2013 as a dating app, has evolved into a service connecting people beyond romantic interests. Classic online matchmaking is still part of the package, but the app also offers things like interest-related group chats. The company has just raised $10 million to fuel expansion into Japan and Korea.

2) (India): is like a homegrown version of Google Maps and Moovit, only it is way more localised and detailed.

3) (Singapore): is a location-based exchange rate aggregator. Users can search for the best live cash exchange rate offered by money changers around them and lock in for a trade.

4) (Indonesia): The app offers unbranded women’s fashion and accessories. Prices are low-end. 

5) (India): Bangalore-based is a social networking app in multiple vernacular languages. Currently, it is available in four Indian languages — Hindi, Marathi, Malayalam, and Telugu.

6) (Singapore): is a Singapore-based start-up that wants to help you get cash wherever you are. If you want to withdraw cash from your bank, all you need to do is place an order on within your bank’s app, select a merchant near you, and pick up the cash. 

7) Ridlr (India): Ridlr is an app that tracks public transport, lets riders plan their trips, and recharges metro cards. It eventually plans to provide end-to-end connectivity for riders across India.

8) Touché (Singapore): Touché created a device that lets merchants receive payments and gather information about their customers through their fingerprints. Users can make a purchase by touching their fingers to the machine to authorise payment.
