Today we celebrate Singapore's 55 years of independence. It is a monumental achievement for us as a nation, and we Singaporeans will continue to strive on for the betterment of our nation and ourselves.

Today we asked a few of our local business owners what it's like to run a business in Singapore and some. Here is what they said!

Jeremy of Yaytray

Q: Has being Singaporean helped with your success? Why? 
A: Yes. We are grateful for having received a lot of support from fellow Singaporeans both during and after our Kickstarter campaign, as there is a general sentiment of Singaporeans wanting to help fellow Singapore brands succeed.

Q: What are your favourite things about being a brand owner?
A: Being able to bring across our brand story to our target audience, and having them accept and endorse what we stand for.

Q: If you could give one piece of advice to your fellow singaporeans, what would it be?
A: Value your customers and do your best to keep them happy.

About Yaytray

Parenting is one of life's most challenging journeys.

As parents ourselves, we invariably go through all the ups and downs that come with this roller-coaster ride of experiences and emotions. There are days which make us feel on top of the world, and there are days which make us wonder if we can ever get through them in one piece.

Thus, we empathise fully whenever we meet parents who seem to struggle with the same parenting journey as us.

YURICA was thus born with the mission of helping to make parenting a much more joyful experience.

Through the products and ideas that we meticulously create, we hope to ease the pain points often associated with feeding and caring for your child, so that parents can all focus on the things which truly matter, such as enjoying quality time with your children with complete peace of mind.

Parenting can be hard, but it doesn't always have to be so.

Here's to a fulfilling journey ahead!
