SME Co-Investment Fund III is the third fund focusing on providing patient growth capital for Singapore-based SMEs.

“Having smart, patient capital that attracts investors with the expertise and the right time horizon is another way to help firms scale-up. Over the past few years, the Government has worked on improving access to private capital for start-ups and SMEs,” Heng said.
