Business Financing


Since the launch of the Investment Advisory Committee and the advocacy of business financial literacy by SMCCI, numerous members have expressed their need for access to financing to scale up their business. During these Covid-19 induced recession, the demand for financing has resurfaced for companies to sustain their business. 

 On the other hand, SMCCI regularly receives request from business financing providers for an audience with the members to promote their services. With a structured programme, we believe that these two sides can be properly matched and reap mutual benefits for all parties involved, including SMCCI. 

The objectives of the Business Financing Initiative are as follows: 

  • Streamline the processes for members to have access to financing and providers to market services to members 
  • Conduct due diligence on the financiers and borrowers to prevent abuse and defaults 
  • Ring-fence the providers and members to give limited exclusivity for these two groups
