Dear Members and Friends

You know your Chamber stands for collaboration as the fastest way to innovate. Read on to hear from your fellow member bizzi about its approach to SME collaboration.

Have a great week ahead.

Warmest regards

Victor Mills
Chief Executive


The CFE Report highlighted collaboration as one of the seven key pillars of growth for Singaporean businesses. So why aren’t more SMEs collaborating?

Often, they do not know where to start. In addition, SMEs are often faced with two fundamental challenges – lack of resources and lack of access to contacts and opportunities. Collaboration can overcome both these challenges.

By undertaking focused, effective collaboration, SMEs can:

• Expand without needing to diversify their product offering or location.
• Almost entirely remove the need to find or create extra resources to grow.
• Significantly reduce the risks they face during expansion.

Once you have caught the ‘collaboration bug’, we think that you can give your business the opportunity for potentially unlimited growth.
