You must be an SME that meets these criteria:
• Registered and operating in Singapore
• Local shareholding of at least 30%
• Be a viable business with track record

In general, startups are not eligible for EDG. They are supported under another programme known as Startup SG. For more information, click here for Startup SG’s website.

If you are a sole proprietor or with less than 3 employees, the chances are reduced when applying for a grant. Consideration is given to companies with plans to expand and hire more staff.

We engaged Serene and her team to work on the branding and marketing assets for Mation Asia. I am impressed that they could understand our business model fast and well enough to develop our branding strategies for the Asian Pacific Markets. Serene and the team at Bluehive demonstrated a deep understanding of not only branding and marketing, but a strong business sense and thorough understanding of how businesses work. I strongly recommend Bluehive Consulting to companies looking into B2B Marketing and Global Branding.

We engaged Bluehive Consulting for the brand and product development for Bodega in a new market. I am impressed with the work delivered; which was within a short time frame.  The founders’ expertise, industry experiences and their network in the F&B related and Consumer Appliances industry is indeed beneficial for companies looking to launch their brands or products in a short time frame effectively.  Bluehive is more than a branding or creative agency, I am impressed by the business experiences of the team and their network in Europe and Asia Pacific; and the fact that they can connect you fast to their industry network of distributors.

The team of consultants from Bluehive Consulting LLP was very professional and efficient in providing their branding and strategic reports to assist Winstudio Architects. We requested them to expedite the process in view of the ongoing pandemic so that my company can begin the marketing programme as soon as possible. They delivered both reports according to plan and exceeded our expectations both in the positioning and range of marketing outreach that we can create across various social media platforms. Highly recommended if your company provides Interior Design, Architecture, Kitchen, Retail or home appliances services, as Bluehive have been the lead consultants for similar companies in the past.
