With tight cashflows and deteriorating margins due to a lack of projects coupled with increasing competition and high labour and rental costs, ASPRI took the lead to organise a seminar on alternative financing with partners from Minterest, Nufin Data, SMECentre@NorthWest and Singapore National Employers Federation (SNEF). This event was also supported by the Employment and Employability Institute (e2i).
The seminar was over-subscribed with many member companies showing great interest on the topic of alternative financing and relevant SME grants available.
Other notable topics include:
The seminar was fronted with eloquent and engaging speakers that made the entire session interactive and relevant. Attendees noted many relatable points and could visualise actual applications into their day-to-day operations.
We were also heartened to see that the event help facilitate many conversations which could possibly spark new collaborations for our member companies and our partners.
