Karamjit Singh focuses his thoughts on the startup scene, which welcomed Singapore’s billionaire investor Peter Lim, Cradle’s overdue seed fund, a look at how the venture industry in Malaysia did in 2014 and a few new details from Singapore’s Infocomm Media Masterplan.

Peter Lim, the Singaporean billionaire owner of the Valencia football club, has taken a 20% interest in the property portal recently launched by Kuala Lumpur-based The Edge Media Group, for an undisclosed sum.

The Heat, a weekly newsmagazine from the HCK Media stable, is being pulled off the streets and will remain only as a digital and online publication; its stablemate, the fornightly Big Issue digital magazine will be closed, journalists say.
