SPRING Singapore Innovation and Capability Voucher (ICV)
The Singapore Innovation and Capability Voucher (ICV), an initiative by SPRING Singapore, aims to encourage more Singapore SMEs to enhance their capabilities by upgrading in four areas – innovation, productivity, human resources and financial management.
