Who are eligible for the EDG grant?
The minimum qualifying criteria for EDG include:
Being a business entity registered and operating in Singapore
Having a minimum of 30% local shareholding
Being in a financially viable position to start and complete the project
Making the best use of the EDG grant
The EDG grant allows you to cost-effectively engage experts to help you make your processes more efficient.
For example, you could use the EDG grant to offset the costs of engaging automation experts to review and redesign your existing workflows, and to leverage technologies like Robotic Process Automation (RPA) to digitise and automate business processes. This cuts down mundane, menial tasks and frees up your employees for activities that truly add value to your business.
To maximise your chances of a successful EDG grant application, your project must be scoped in a way that fulfills all grant requirements.
