Alternative SME Financing - Fueling the Growth of Local Businesses
Time & Location
About The Event
Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) often find it difficult to access the formal lending system.
Banks have stringent credit norms and require a business to meet certain basic eligibility criteria before they are willing to consider its request for finance. Traditional financial institutions also find it uneconomical to make small business loans since these loans do not commensurate with the profits they make.
Crowdfunding is an up and coming financial tool in Singapore. Crowdfunding has allows businesses (mainly SMEs) to raise funding from a crowd of many individuals, rather than looking for large amounts from a few investors or from a bank. They are also flexible, affordable and fast.
Together with our partner, Funding Societies, we would like to invite you to join us for a session to learn more about this alternative financing option and how it can enable our business growth and allow us to further scale our businesses for the years to come.
Due to space constraints and logistical arrangements for F&B, please register early to avoid disappointment.
We look forward to hosting you soon!
