The French Chamber Partners With Singapore Business Federation's RISE Programme

About the RISE Programme:

Singapore Business Federation (SBF) launched the RISE programme to help businesses tide over the challenges arising from COVID-19 and push on with transformation efforts in preparation for economic recovery.

In particular, the programme can aid small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) build up their capabilities, digitalise and grow by making it more affordable for them to participate in capacity-building, growth and internationalisation programmes.

Under RISE, an SBF member with a paid-up capital not exceeding $5 million can apply for a one-time support of up to $500 to offset the cost of participation in capability upgrading and business growth activities. By partnering trade associations and chambers like the French Chamber of Commerce in Singapore, SBF is able to offer a wider range of activities for SBF members to choose from.

The RISE Programme will run from 1 July 2020 to 31 December 2021, or until the fund is exhausted, whichever is earlier. The 18-month period provides SMEs with adequate time to relook at their strategies and processes, and to decide on suitable courses and events that meet their business objectives.
