Since MAS has been shut down, it has left many companies wondering where they can get funding for their business from.

  • There are government-backed support and finance for business, including: grants, finance and loans, business support e.g. mentoring, consultancy, funding for small and medium-sized businesses and start-ups. Find out more here:
