Salesforce Small Business Relief Grants Programme
Singapore Business Federation (SBF) and Salesforce came together to launch the Salesforce Small Business Relief Grants Programme to support small businesses to stay afloat and resuscitate their businesses which are affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Launched in November 2020, S$960,000 was set aside for 120 companies to receive ‘one off’ payment grants of S$8,000.
The funds will be utilised for rental and operational costs, maintaining employee payroll, skills upgrading, technology adoption, digitalisation, and consultation for business transformation. Applications were opened on 23 November 2020 and closed on 23 December 2020, with the selection process completed by 31 January 2021. SBF is delighted to announce the 120 successful recipients of the Small Business Relief Grants made possible by Salesforce.
Meet the successful grant recipients of our Salesforce Small Business Relief Grants
Applications were received from a diverse group of businesses with SMEs in industries ranging across manufacturing, healthcare, freight forwarding and many more. The grant recipients have best demonstrated their financial strain, how the business will use the grant to change or innovate, how the change or innovation will sustain the business’s recovery and allow it to prosper, and how the grant will support the role each business plays in their community.
The 120 successful recipients will be able to use the grant for rental and other operating costs, employee payroll, skills upgrading, technology adoption, digitalisation and business transformation.
Congratulations to the 120 successful recipients of the Salesforce Small Business Relief Grants programme. All recipients have been contacted and awarded with the grant of S$8,000 to support their recovery efforts. The full list of grant recipients is available here.
