We are excited about this opportunity to work with Clearbridge Accelerator to help companies access capital more easily and become a pan-Asian platform to support equity crowdfunding. SGX has a long history of supporting entrepreneurs: our Catalist board is a much sought-after avenue for SMEs to raise funds. This new platform will not only expand our suite of fund-raising services but also enable us to support entrepreneurs and SMEs at every stage of their growth.

SPRING Singapore works closely with our partners in strengthening our pro-enterprise environment. The presence of a robust financing landscape and an active involvement from the private investor community complements our efforts in helping our innovative and resilient local enterprises. With the development of such a platform, we hope to interest more investors to consider the value proposition of our local enterprises. We look forward to more such avenues to give our start-ups and SMEs a boost in their growth journey.
