Introduction to TVP fund

To enhance competitiveness of local small and medium enterprises (“SMEs”), the Technology Voucher Programme (TVP) aims to subsidise SMEs on the use of technological services and solutions to improve productivity, upgrade or transform their business processes. Funding up to $400,000 for each eligible enterprise will be provided on a 2:1 matching basis. The applicant enterprise must contribute no less than one third of the total approved project cost. In other words, funding on no more than two-thirds of the total approved project cost will be provided to an applicant enterprise on a reimbursement basis based on the actual project cost.
