Company descriptionThe Association of Small & Medium Enterprises is a not-for-profit organisation that welcomes all in the entrepreneurial community into our membership.
Pioneered by a group of entrepreneurs in 1986, our Association has grown from strength to strength and remains one of the foremost champions of the Singapore pro-enterprise movement. Today, we continue to work closely with both the public and the private sectors to ensure that businesses in Singapore can operate in a conducive and fair environment.
With the entrepreneur and his business in mind, we are dedicated to playing a pivotal role in creating a robust business ecosystem that is favourable to the success of SMEs. At ASME, we have put in place a holistic framework that includes a variety of effective activities and services tailored to meet the needs of our members and Singapore SMEs.
With a wide array of services and programmes, ASME is well-poised to facilitate the growth and development of a larger pool of SMEs in Singapore as it looks towards creating a conducive business environment and effective platform for the success of local enterprises.
Together with a strong focus on entrepreneurship and the individual behind the enterprise, ASME will continue to strive towards enhancing our position as the business association for entrepreneurs by entrepreneurs.
