Rocket Internet shuts down Singapore outfit of furniture portal Home24?


After a series of laying off employees from their Philippine operations, German cloning titan Rocket Internet has fired more employees in Southeast Asia, this time from its Singapore base. Online furniture shopping portal is apparently shutting down.
