• Why and How SME Challenge starts

    Mission of SME Challenge

    Help SMEs get Fitter for Business !

    Every SMEs needs the right help, guidance and resources to build their Core Business Competencies to help them be more competitive in the global marketplace

     

    We liken this to "Basic Healthcare" that all SMEs must get. When your health is good, it comes with better quality of life and you can have the options to do more things in life and get fitter

     

    Without Basic Health, it is not possible to get Fitter

     

    The SME Challenge helps you build your health and grow fitter and stronger

    Vision of SME Challenge

    The Strategy to do it

    We take the best in class Consulting and Training Knowledge and Know-How and Best Practices from working with many SMEs and compact them into Micro Programs that will be manageable and easy for the SMEs to adopt and implement

     

    We also develop a Road Map to help them do so

     

    For those who knows exactly what they need, we also have a "Sushi Belt" concept where they can pick and choose what SME Challenge module they need to grow their business without having to do the rest

     

    For example, a SME may decide it just want to focus on the SALES Module first if its sales is weak. Another more established one may decide to take up the FREE CRM / HRM Modules to streamline their business and automate processes

  • Why we run the SME Challenge FREE ?

    Why Free ?

    Most SMEs are pretty much cash tight and that usually become an excuse not to take actions on things that will help them grow their business. We decided to make it FREE cos it level the playing field and everyone can simply come on board to start the journey to improve themselves and their business. No more excuses

    It boils down to whether you have the will & resolve to do something for your self and your business

    Take the First Step to Power Up

    The Journey of a 1,000 mile begin with a single step. For transformation to happen, the SME has to take the first step towards positive change. We also give FREE to encourage them to take the first step safely without fear
