Hand-in-Hand, Together We Can


 CrowdFunding Asia™ ideation started as far back as 2011 with thoughts on CrowdWISDOM. I had the honor of being presented with a diary which Thailand SEC presented to its customers, friends and partners. It was a diary with an emphasis on team effort, “Hand-in-Hand, Together We CAN”.

 Much to my amazed years later, Phoenixict™ Pte Ltd was established in 2013 with the focus on driving CrowdWISDOM, a blue ocean strategy to serve this competitive business field where resources mean strategy and bullets to win. Appreciating the web trending and believing in the future of digital economy, Phoenixict sets its sights on CrowdSOURCING and CrowdFUNDING.


 Noting that Crowdfunding has been growing exponentially in various parts of the world other than Asia, Phoenixict decided to get rooted in Singapore to “advocate, promote, evangelize and educate” the Crowd through publicity and outreach events, with its inaugural summit, “CrowdFunding Asia Summit” ( held in Singapore on 4-5 August 2014. We continued to engage the industry public, regulators and private sector to play the global catch up game. Equity and lending crowdfunding regulations are now actively pursued, while donation and reward crowdfunding are finding their uniqueness and positioning to world leaders like Kickstarters & Indiegogo.

 The global platform of Crowdfunding works to drive collaborative effort, co-create innovation, commercialize research and integrate people to offer alternatives to serve the growing concern on funding. Having good governance, leadership, social engagement will definitely address sustainability issues in Asia.

 When one buys that idea, one wants to be part of it, one envisions change and possibilities occur regardless of where one is in the world. This is the call for the Power of One, where one plus many come together to support the choice industry. Crowdfunding shapes and democratizes capitalism; it is not a replacement to any current funding option, rather it is “a robust alternative to those who dare live their dream”.

 BE one of game changers.

 Your commitment, Our conviction. Together, we believe that One Crowd can change the landscape for a better world.
