RE: Epicentre Holdings
The founders of the company greatly benefited from Epicentre's journey into a listed company

"The company's Apple business began in 2002 when four friends pooled S$500,000 to open a store at Wheelock Place". Based on the annual reports of their salary, 2 of the founders have earned multi million incomes throughout this journey. This is a good example of founders still earning a good pay, despite the difficult business condition.

Epicentre first S'pore-listed firm to use p2p lending

The debt is backed by a corporate guarantee from Epicentre Holdings, which swung into a net loss for the first half of fiscal 2016. Corporate guarantees are not common as most peer-to-peer loans are backed by personal guarantees. The debt will be repaid through the sale of merchandise, according to a summary of the deal seen by The Business Times.

One tranche has an option for Epicentre to repay the debt earlier than 12 months, through what is known as a callable note.

Err what's corporate guarantee? Meaning IOU aka "Trust Me I'm an ACRA entity"? Big Grin If the chairman gives personal guarantee at least it means something Smile

And I guess crowdfunding officially died in Singapore. Probably works only for non profit social causes.
