Singapore Startups are cash crunched and need to be on a tight budget. Apart from working from home and surviving on ramen, sometimes startups cannot afford expensive software as well.  Even learning resources can be hard to come by because of the price points. But there are a lot of people out there in the world who are giving back to the startup community with their free tools, resources and more.
