ENTERPRISE SINGAPORE CERTIFIED MARKETING CONSULTANT SINGAPORE

 

We receive this question very frequently. Are you a certified EDG Marketing Consultant?

Our answer is No, however, there is also no need to be an enterprise Singapore certified consultant.

According to the EDG Grant policies for Certified Consultants:

Companies applying for EDG Grant support for consultancy-related costs must engage management consultants with Enterprise Singapore-recognised certification. Those who do not need to be certified are:

  1. Members/ specialists in the consultancy team who are not providing management consultancy services, but are performing dedicated functions, such as market research, audit, fieldwork, design/ artwork, equipment installation, and drafting of legal agreements.

  2. Consultants offering technical advice and expertise in the development of new technology, and solutions vendors.

Therefore, while it is true that some some services require a consultant to be EDG Grant Certified, the services that NCODE Consultant provides falls under category that does not require EDG Grant Certification. This is because our scope of work is classified as technology and solution vendor, rather than Management Consultancy.

GRANT CONSULTANT SOFTWARE, EQUIPMENT AND MACHINERY

 

A common question that we get is about getting grants for automation equipment and machinery. For example, you may be a manufacturing company that is looking to purchase an automated bending machine, or an automatic laser cutter. Will such machines be subsidized by the EDG Grant? The answer is sadly, no. 

Take for example you are an engineering company that wants to buy 5 automation machines. The costs of these 5 automation machines will be considered operational costs, and will not be covered by the grant. However, lets say you wanted to go further.

(a) you want to technologically integrate all the 5 machines together into a single flow, and control all 5 machines together remotely.

(b) you want to implement Internet-Of-Things capabilities to all 5 machines, adding sensors to them, so that their operational efficiency can be monitored and analyzed live via a single unified software.

Such examples of automation innovations above and beyond the machines themselves will be eligible for the EDG Grant.

If you are looking for EDG Grant funding, do note that the enhanced EDG Grant subsidizing up to 90% will only last until 31 Mar 2022.

HOW CAN GOVERNMENT GRANTS CONSULTANTS HELP SMES WITH THE EDG GRANT?

The EDG Grant is assessed by Enterprise Singapore on a case by case basis. Grant subsidies will then be allocated, ranging from 30% to 80% on average. Therefore, if you were to apply for the EDG Grant on your own, your application may miss a lot of required details, resulting in a low grant subsidy. As a company that provides Grant Consulting in Singapore specializing in the EDG Grant, we will be able to help you to achieve a higher grant subsidy % than if you were to approach the application on your own. Looking for Government Grants Consultants to help you with your EDG Grant preparation? Speak with one of our friendly EDG Grant Consultants today!

We provide Grant Consulting in Singapore for the EDG Grant. We have 2 Grant Consultants dedicated to Productivity and Innovation related projects, and more certified grant consultants for branding and digital marketing related projects.

IS IT WORTH IT TO ENGAGE AN EDG GRANT CONSULTANT IN SINGAPORE?

Lets do a simple calculation here. Usually, when companies apply for the EDG Grant on their own, they tend to get a subsidy rate of about 30-50% subsidy. At NCODE, our applications usually achieve an average of 80% subsidy. Lets imagine there is a project that costs $100,000. On their own, the SME would have received $40,000 in subsidies. With NCODE, the SME would have achieved $80,000 in subsidies. This makes the small fees payable to the EDG Grant Consultant in Singapore very worth it.

I AM LOOKING FOR EDG GRANT CONSULTANT REVIEWS IN SINGAPORE.
HOW WOULD I KNOW WHETHER EDG GRANT CONSULTANTS ARE GOOD OR NOT?
CAN THE ENTERPRISE DEVELOPMENT GRANT CONSULTANT GUARANTEE RESULTS?

You may be wondering the above, and therefore try to find EDG Grant Consultant reviews in Singapore to try to find one that can guarantee you results. To be transparent, it would not be possible for an EDG Consultant in Singapore to guarantee you results. For example, to guarantee you that they will achieve 90% EDG funding for you. This is because, the Grant itself is administered by Enterprise Singapore, and the EDG Grant Consultant in Singapore will therefore not have any control over this process. We would therefore advise you to choose experienced companies providing Grant Consulting in Singapore. Their experience will assure you of the best possibility of good results.

MUST THE EDG GRANT CONSULTANT THAT WE ENGAGE BE AN ENTERPRISE SINGAPORE CERTIFIED CONSULTANT?

No, the EDG Grant Consultant that you engage does not need to be an Enterprise Singapore Certified Consultant if it is for IT projects. This is because according to the EDG Grant policies, companies applying for EDG Grant support for consultancy-related costs must engage management consultants with Enterprise Singapore-recognised certification.

Consultants offering technical advice and expertise in the development of new technology, and solutions vendors.​

WHY SHOULD I ENGAGE AN EDG CONSULTANT IN SINGAPORE?

An experienced EDG Grant Consultant in Singapore would have gone through the grant application process many times before and would be able to do 2 things for you:

(1) EDG Consultants in Singapore would know how best to prepare the grant application in order to achieve the best results. Most of the time, an EDG Grant Consultant in Singapore can get you more favourable results compared to if you were to do it yourself.
(2) EDG Consultants in Singapore would be able to share with you their past records for success. As an established company that provides Grant Consulting in Singapore, we often manage to achieve between 70-80% of subsidy out of the full 90%. Based on our experience, it is almost impossible to achieve a full 90% subsidy, because in every project there are always costs that do not qualify. We have seen many occasions where businesses try to submit applications on their own, and only achieve 30-40% subsidy as a result due to the lack of preparation.

WE ARE LOOKING FOR AN ENTERPRISE SINGAPORE CERTIFIED MARKETING CONSULTANT SINGAPORE.
DO YOU FULFILL THE REQUIREMENTS?

Yes, we do have certified EDG consultants for branding and digital marketing. We are a company that provides Grant Consulting in Singapore specializing in the EDG Grant.

SINCE YOU ARE A GOVERNMENT GRANT CONSULTANT, DO YOU WORK FOR THE GOVERNMENT?

No. We are a company that provides Grant Consulting in Singapore. We are not associated with the Government. Our purpose is to aid SMEs to make complete and successful EDG grant applications that can achieve up to 80% of grant subsidy. Without EDG Grant Consultants, it is common to see SMEs with little knowledge of the application process to submit inadequate applications that give poor subsidy results in the end.
