About Startup SG Founder (SSGF)

Since 2017, Startup SG Founder has provided first-time entrepreneurs with mentorship support and startup capital grant through Accredited Mentor Partners (AMPs). 

Enterprise Singapore (ESG) has enhanced the Startup SG Founder programme to boost the pipeline of new innovative startups in Singapore. During his Ministerial Speech on 17 August 2020, Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat announced that up to S$150 million had been set aside for this.

The enhanced Startup SG Founder scheme comprises two tracks: The Startup SG Founder “Train” track (a new track) - which provides 3-month Venture Building (VB) programmes - and the Startup SG Founder “Start” track (enhanced from the existing SSGF scheme).

​Through the VB programmes, startup teams are taught how to identify business opportunities and build a scalable business model around these market validated ideas.
