Is this an immigration question? You probably know that you can apply for an EAD, right?
Mr. Shusterman's (former INS Trial Attorney, 1976-82) response to your question is general in nature, as not all the facts are known to him. You should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law to review all the facts in your case in order to receive advice specific to your case. Mr. Shusterman's statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.
Using the Find a Lawyer feature above and having a conversation with an immigration attorney of your choice might be a good starting point.

You are eligible to work under a L2 visa. If however, you would like to start an affiliate of your Singapore-based company, that too is possible. Consult with an experienced immigration attorney for more information.
L2 visa holders may apply for an EAD. You must have a valid EAD in hand in order to work in the U.S. If you prefer to step outside of the L2 status to hold a status independent from your L-1 spouse there are employment-based visa options available to discuss that would permit you to expand your business into the U.S. I recommend you consult with an immigration attorney experienced in business immigration to review the options and pros/cons of the L-2 EAD versus an independent status.
