“With its five million inhabitants and its mix of English and Mandarin, Singapore is especially enticing and will be our first foray into Southeast Asia. In addition, Singapore is in the forefront regarding digital content and subscription services, which fits well with the model we offer,” says Stefan Tegenfalk, Head of Expansion at Storytel.
