Launch Pad: Understanding and Accessing Grants and Funding

AustCham, in partnership with the New Zealand Chamber of Commerce, presents a four-part series covering key issues for members who have an existing business or plan to start a business in Singapore. Members can learn and engage with experienced industry experts in an intimate and informal setting with opportunity for Q&A at each session.

In this session, we will help you to understand available grants and funding, and how you can access them. Learn about:
  • What type of funding is right for me
  • How do I ensure I’m investor ready
  • Key things to consider when taking on investors

Workshop content:

  1. Grants available to foreign entrepreneurs
  2. Identifying and accessing funding
  3. Types of funding to consider
  4. Being investor ready
  5. Continuity: Expectation, Communication and Documentation
This workshop is limited to 14 participants who have an existing start-up or plan to start a business in Singapore.
