Develop new business capabilities by collaborating with other companies. Form partnerships to drive innovation and business development with PACT.



The PACT programme encourages companies to collaborate and develop new capabilities. You can collaborate with a group(s) of businesses to strengthen your market position both locally and internationally. PACT supports partnerships between enterprises of all sizes, be it between similar-sized enterprises or small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and startups.

Driven by a lead organisation, the types of partnerships that are supportable include:

Capability Development

  1. Supplier Development: Upgrade capabilities of new and existing suppliers to increase productivity, quality and customer service, which in turn benefits the lead organisation to achieve a higher quality supply chain
  2. Co-innovation: Develop a test-bed for innovative products and processes, leading to capability upgrading and productivity gains
  3. Knowledge Transfer: Encourage exchange of knowledge between companies through industry conferences and training workshops

Business Development

  1. Alliances or Consortiums: Form partnerships to pursue projects, both locally and overseas – aggregating demand for products and services, developing integrated solutions, or using a common project platform
  2. Shared Resources: Pool common resources to achieve economies of scale and/or engage in shared marketing efforts

Support for SMEs will be capped at 70% and non-SMEs at 50% of the qualifying costs.



To qualify for the programme, PACT projects should:

  • Consist of a minimum of two locally-based enterprises
  • Include a majority of Singapore enterprises, even though MNCs/foreign companies can be involved in the partnership
  • Result in mutually beneficial collaborations between local enterprises to enable capability upgrading and business development
  • Have an appointed lead company, which will be responsible for driving the implementation and successful delivery of the project. The lead company must demonstrate a clear capability to drive the partnership.
