RM 1,000 State Government Incentive
Apply for an incentive of RM1,000 from Penang State Government Bantuan Khas Kewangan (BKK) when you sell on a Business-to-Business (B2B) platform. In view of our proposal to YAB Chow Kon Yeow, the State government has approved a one-off grant of RM 1,000 each for 1,000 SMEs to help finance the effort to digitalise their operations by embarking on a B2B platform.
SAMENTA is very grateful for the financial assistance from the Penang State Government and is honoured to be chosen to lead this digitalization initiative. We are working closely with Digital Penang and have selected 4 local B2B platforms to be on the panel.
As we are receiving public funds, we have to ensure that the grant is utilized for its intended outcome. To ensure the efficacy of the grant, we have compiled a List of Criteria (see attached) to determine that only those who are eligible would be considered.
This funding should serve as a catalyst to spur our Penang SMEs to embrace the Digitalisation Journey. It is not the end of all but, a start for those who are still waiting to digitalise their business. The necessity to pivot and transform becomes more urgent as SMEs have to adapt to the New Norm. There would also be other programmes that would be rolled out by Digital Penang and SMEs should watch that space closely for more information.
