How your company can tap into Digital Resilience Bonus by IMDA

 

 

One of the important lessons many businesses in Singapore have learned from during the Covid-19 pandemic is to be quick and adaptable in the face of uncertainties. Especially in the F&B and retail industries, due to safe distancing measures, businesses in bricks and mortar now can cater to lesser customers compared to Pre-Covid-19. Furthermore, shutting down malls and restaurants during the Circuit Breaker has inevitably changed consumer behaviours, and many have since chosen to buy online and use delivery services.

As a result of this emergence of a new normal, digitalisation not only offers businesses a competitive edge and improves productivity, but also provides a means to remain resilient in this uncertain economic climate. 

With the aim of uplifting digital capabilities of enterprises to adapt to these changes, Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) has rolled out Digital Resilience Bonus (DRB) from which your company can benefit. Read below on the eligibility criteria and how we can help you apply for DRB.
