Yes. It’s an equity-free grant, meaning that ESG does not take shares in company in exchange for the grant. However, the grant disbursement is tied to certain milestones and will only be unlocked after the achievement of the milestones. Please approach the AMPs to find out more about the milestones component of the grant.
The applicant’s business entity should not have been registered or incorporated for more than 6 months at the point of application to the Accredited Mentor Partner (AMP). If your business entity has been registered for more than 6 months and you are applying the grant under that business entity, you will not be eligible. If you have more than one business entity registered under your name, you will not qualify as a first-time founder5 to apply for the grant.
You will still be eligible if the Sole Proprietorship/Partnerships or LLP had been registered for less than 6 months at the point of application to the AMP. You will be required to shut down the existing sole proprietorship/partnership or LLP and incorporate a PrivateLimited company prior to the application to EnterpriseSG. The grant monies are intended for the sole purpose of the main applicants to use as working capital for their registered company that is the receiving entity of the grant. If you had previously incorporated a sole proprietorship/partnership or LLP, and subsequently shut it down to incorporate a Private Limited bearing the same company name, the 6-months period starts at the point when you first incorporated the sole proprietorship/partnership or LLP
Both applicants cannot be employed by another organization besides the startup and must be key decision makers in the startup.
The startup should notify both their AMP and Enterprise SG immediately, and they will be given 3 months to find a replacement that fulfills ALL eligibility criteria. If the startup fails to find a replacement, EnterpriseSG reserves the right to terminate the grant and activate a clawback of the grant monies disbursed from the startup.
