- RIP Mr Lee Kuan Yew
We offer our condolences to the family of Mr Lee Kuan Yew on his passing today. Straits Knowledge was founded after Mr Lee had stepped down as Prime Minister. However we are keenly aware that who we are, what we do, and the unique opportunities we have had to work and learn and develop in the past thirteen years, would not have been possible without Mr Lee’s extraordinary drive, determination, vision, and his ability to harness the energy of other talented people. Rest in Peace and thank you for your service to Singapore.
