"In recent years, there has been an influx of businesses led by young, vibrant entrepreneurs. With an app like Duriana, anyone with a smartphone can start a business. As social commerce continues to grow in Singapore, these young entrepreneurs have eagerly adopted our app as their main way of selling and reaching new customers," said Camilo Paredes, Co-founder of Duriana.
