Enterprise Development Grant


Enterprise Singapore’s new flagship grant – the Enterprise Development Grant (EDG) – was launched on 25th October 2018, replacing the Capability Development Grant (CDG) and Global Company Partnership (GCP) grant. The Enterprise Development Grant is a single grant that integrates support for enterprises who are seeking support to upgrade, innovate, venture overseas, or are ready to embark on any combination of these strategies.


Enterprise Development Grant

Today and into the future, companies that thrive are the ones that have strong business foundations and strategies, adopt technology and innovative processes, and grow their overseas presence.

The Enterprise Development Grant (EDG) helps Singapore companies grow and transform. This grant supports projects that help you upgrade your business, innovate or venture overseas, under three pillars


1. Core Capabilities

  1. Projects under Core Capabilities help businesses prepare for growth and transformation by strengthening their business foundations. These should go beyond basic functions such as sales and accounting.

2. Innovation and Productivity

  1. Projects under Innovation and Productivity support companies that explore new areas of growth, or look for ways to enhance efficiency. These could include reviewing and redesigning workflow and processes. Companies could also tap into automation and technologies to make routine tasks more efficient


3. Market Access

Projects under Market Access support Singapore companies that are willing and ready to venture overseas. You may tap into the EDG to help defray some of the costs of expanding into overseas markets.

What does the EDG support?

The grant funds up to 70% of qualifying project costs namely third party consultancy fees, software and equipment, and incremental internal manpower cost.

Who can apply?

To qualify for the EDG, you need to:

  • Be registered and operating in Singapore
  • Have a minimum of 30% local shareholding
  • Be in a financially viable position to start and complete the project

Applications will be assessed by Enterprise Singapore based on project scope, project outcomes and competency of service provider.
