Enterprise Development Grant

Finance Minister Heng Swee Keat has announced at Budget 2018 that Spring Singapore's Capability Development Grant (CDG) and International Enterprise Singapore's Global Company Partnership (GCP) grant will be combined into the Enterprise Development Grant (EDG).

Both the CDG and GCP would expire on 31 March 2018. The new EDG would start in Q4 2018 for funding in FY2018 and FY2019.

As EDG would be combing CDG and GCP, we can reasonably foresee the many key successful objectives of CDG and GCP would continue to be the focus in the new EDG. Here is a quick recap of CDG and GCP.

GCP grant is designed to help take Singapore businesses go global by providing assistance in the areas of building internal capabilities, manpower development and gaining market access. In short, it support overseas expansion plans for Singapore businesses.

CDG grant supports Singapore businesses in upgrading their operational capabilities in the following 10 development areas:

  • Product Development

  • Branding & Marketing

  • Business Excellence

  • Business Model Transformation

  • Standards Adoption

  • Financial Management

  • Human Capital Development

  • Intellectual Property

  • Enhancing Business Processes for Productivity

  • Service Excellence

Singapore businesses interested to apply for EDG should plan ahead in prioritizing their operational capabilities building and overseas expansion plans. Application of EDG would be via the Business Grant Portal.
