What we're about

The mission at Draper Startup House is to enable ONE MILLION entrepreneurs by 2030, disrupting hospitality by inventing a new category of entrepreneurial tourism and creating true value through their ecosystem of support for entrepreneurs.

Through the use of real human connection, inspired business travel, a diverse-minded community and access to global citizens - the community members of Draper Startup House are able to connect to new opportunities, inspire one another to innovate and execute, and empower one another to GO BIG, pay it forward, and drive progress.

Our hostels are closed in most locations, as per regulations.

However, we have launched an online community for entrepreneurs to continue with hustling and being enabled together: the Draper Entrepreneur Network (http://den.draperstartuphouse.com/). Through access to resources, connections and the network, Draper Startup House aspires that entrepreneurs remain inspired and empowered to tide through this period and come out stronger together, as they rise up to the challenge.


Community of Entrepreneurs

Are you a young startup or entrepreneur on a budget, busy building your business venture and need an affordable yet soulful accommodation in the heart of Singapore? Then look no further!

Come to Draper Startup House where we understand the journey of entrepreneurship. Draper Startup House is a space for you to explore and engage with likeminded people on the same entrepreneurial journey. We are a community of startups and entrepreneurs in the heart of Singapore.

Intimate I Comfort I Cosy I Passionate - Tucked away in the most vibrant corner of Singapore's exciting heritage neighbourhood of Chinatown / Ann Siang Hill, steps away from the central business district! We strive to deliver beyond the promise of clean rooms and a safe environment, because we know what being a young entrepreneur on a budget is like. Book yourself a capsule bed to crash for a few nights!

Draper Startup House is an entrepreneur centric hostel housed in the heritage shophouse of the oldest Chinese clan in Singapore. Every brick and tile of this building, and of this neighbourhood, is seeped in the history and DNA of the entrepreneurial spirit. Our map will show you where conglomerates next door in the Central Business District began as startups in the heart of Singapore and grew into blue chip companies.

Located a short 3-5 minutes walk from 2 different MRT Stations (Chinatown and Tanjong Pagar) on 3 different lines, getting around the city will be a breeze. Singapore’s busiest and most famous hawker and food centres - Maxwell Food Centre, Amoy Street Food Centre and Chinatown Food Street are at our doorstep. Enjoy value for money and mouth-watering hawker food right at our doorstep, a quintessential Singaporean experience.

We have a beautiful workspace in our loft where you can spend the day working peacefully on your venture. We have a communal kitchen and we also offer a simple free breakfast every morning which includes a free flow of coffee, tea, milk and juice.

All rooms are mixed dorms with capsule beds and come equipped with air-conditioning and personal lockers. There are no ensuite rooms; toilets and shower facilities are communal.

Welcome to Draper Startup House!
