EntreLink to Government: Enhanced Funding Scheme policy implementation consultancy

Invited by the Trade and Industry Advisory Board under Commerce and Economic Development Bureau (CEDB), EntreLink took part in discussion of revising BUD funding scheme. We suggested to combine the three tracks of BUD-Enterprise Support Programme,  as well as setting up fast tracks and making modifications to the BUD-ESP to ensure startups utilise the funding in a more flexible and needs-oriented way.

We also advised CEDB to extend the scope of eligible export promotion activities and allow more forms of trade fair and exhibition participation to be covered by the fund.

The enhanced funding scheme will be launched in August 2018 at the earliest.
