At Saison Capital, we are always looking to add value to our portfolio companies. The Singapore government (ministries & statutory boards) has provided a range of grants, subsidies, and assistance to startups and SMEs. However, the sheer number of programs may be hard to navigate. Discoverability of programs may also be an issue, with multiple government entities such as Enterprise Singapore, Workforce Singapore, and Skillsfuture Singapore hosting program information on different websites.
We thus decided to put together a shortened list to collate the most relevant programs (particularly hiring-related ones) for startups in Singapore. This list only includes grants and subsidies and does not include non-financial support schemes, low-cost loans, and investment programs. Note that this list is not exhaustive, and we have included links to useful official websites that have more comprehensive information on these government programs
We hope this google sheet will be useful for startups in this Covid-19 pandemic period. Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions.
