Investors in Singapore-based e27, a startup media portal founded by Thaddeus Koh and Mohan Belani, have been seeking an exit, implying that the tech blog and startup events organizer is on the block, three different executives aware of the development, told DEALSTREETASIA.

Operating under the trade name e27 but formally registered as Optimatic Pte Ltd, the founders of e27 say they were inspired by an essay of Paul Graham, a venture capitalist and co-founder of Y Combinator, titled “Why to not not start a startup”, where Graham mentioned 27 as the median age of entrepreneurs. Koh is the portal’s chief operating officer, while Belani is the chief executive.
