A dedicated service team entitled "SME ReachOut" has commenced operation starting 1 January 2020 to support SMEs through face-to-face meetings to help identify funding schemes that suit SMEs, while answering questions relating to applications. The goal is to enhance SME's understanding of the Government's funding schemes, with a view to encouraging better utilisation of the support provided by the Government.
There are over 40 funding schemes provided by the Government for SMEs, which include 5 popular funding schemes: Dedicated Fund on Branding, Upgrading and Domestic Sales (BUD Fund), Export Marketing Fund (EMF), Technology Voucher Programme (TVP), Retail Technologies Adoption Assistance Scheme for Manpower Demand Management (ReTAAS) and Enterprise Support Scheme (ESS).
