If you want to leverage your business skills and establish and operate a successful entrepreneurial venture, you should consider enrolling for SkillsFuture Programmes in Entrepreneurship.

What are SkillsFuture Programmes?

The SkillsFuture Programme is an initiative to offer a wide range of short and modular industry-relevant training programmes in different emerging skill areas to upskill the workforce in Singapore. Singaporeans, 25 years old and above, can receive SkillsFuture Credit of S$500 to pay for professional courses.
