Funding Boost for Singapore Global Enterprises Initiative to Enhance Competitiveness
Bridging gaps with a funding boost for Singapore Global Enterprises initiative
Singapore has excellent news for both small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and large local enterprises (LLEs). The Government’s Budget 2023 aims to benefit these enterprises by increasing available capital for businesses. Under the budget, the funding boost for the Singapore Global Enterprises initiative will amount to SGD1 billion. The SME Co-Investment Fund will also receive an extra SGD150 million under the investment and business-responsive budget.
Last year’s overall results for these schemes indicate promising and positive outcomes sufficient to merit the latest funding boost. The general aim of these schemes is to drive business competitiveness, thereby ensuring firms are ready for a global arena. It will also act as a catalyst for attracting more private capital investments and business growth.
This will provide Singapore-based companies with greater leverage, especially on international business circuits. It will also work to make the country more attractive to MNCs and other high-investment concerns.
An Initiative for Business Success
The additional SGD1 billion funding boost for Singapore Global Enterprises initiative targets the development of LLEs. The concept is to create a steady influx of internationally successful LLEs capable of seamlessly transitioning to the next level.
The increase in available capital will deliver support to LLEs to grow expert and collaborative efforts with leadership-centric programmes. It will accelerate a stronger exercise in internationalisation for these firms via customisable capability-building programmes. Innovation and upskilling are also in the mix, with a focus on creating sustainable pipelines for business competitiveness and talent.
A similar aim also guides the SME Co-Investment Fund boost as it will facilitate firms in scaling up. By increasing the viability of global competitiveness, SMEs will be able to strengthen their financing ecosystem. The sought-after outcome of these schemes is to attract more private investments in the region of SGD300 million.
Ready for a Global Arena?
The funding boost for the Singapore Global Enterprises initiative and the SME Co-Investment Fund is just the tip of the iceberg. Singapore is focusing on creating a robust enterprise ecosystem that attracts both private equity and venture capital financing. The boost in funding is already attracting more investments and doubling total revenues for locally-based companies in the scheme. These enterprises are also showing new capabilities and expanding into international markets confidently.
