Fairmarch had the opportunity to set up an exhibition booth with StartupSG as one of Quest Ventures’ portfolio companies. We were there for the first two days of exhibition, from 17-18 September. During this time, we showcased select products for sale and hosted a lucky draw. Our CEO, Rika, even got a chance to share about her experiences in building startups during one of the talks.

As a Quest portfolio company, we have the benefit of being mentored by some of the best startup founders in the business. As a social impact-focused startup, we are also one of the first few companies under Quest’s social good arms – ESG where we combine social good through digital innovation. We are also headquartered at Quest Ventures’ newly opened co-working space for impact organisations, the Social Collider.

At this event, we were excited to debut products from our newest partner, Design for Good. They have provided us with a stylish collection of Laptop Sleeves, Journal Covers, and Tote Bags, among others, all of which you can check out here. These fashionable items are handcrafted by villagers from SMILE Village in Cambodia.
