As a promoter of the infocomm and media sectors, IMDA provides a wide range of programmes and grants to empower enterprises, individuals, small and medium enterprises (SMEs), and startups alike.

The SG:D movement is our response to digital transformation – to help our businesses and workforce prepare for and embrace the possibilities of the digital economy. Businesses need to digitalise, innovate and adjust business models to capture new revenue streams for both here and abroad. Workers in all sectors must continually learn, re-skill and up-skill themselves to take on better and more fulfilling jobs enabled by the digital technology. The Government will work together with businesses, workers and citizens to maximise the opportunities that digitalization brings.

Opportunities for Companies

Every business can be a digital business. From a local coffee shop using e-payments to the transformation of industry sectors through digital platforms, businesses can gain through digitalisation regardless of their starting points.

Find out more about the programmes and initiatives that are available to businesses.

Opportunities for Talent

Every worker can be empowered by technology. Be it working in a traditional retail shop or a deep tech AI firm, the worker can benefit from new digital skills that are relevant for his current and future job needs. There are avenues for Singaporeans across all industries to continually up-skill and re-skill themselves with the knowledge, skills and capabilities to participate meaningfully in the digital economy.

For professionals, these avenues are delivered under the TechSkills Accelerator (TeSA), a SkillsFuture initiative. This national push for continuous upgrading of skills is in partnership with strategic partners such as Workforce Singapore (WSG) and SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG), and in collaboration with industry partners and hiring employers.

Students are also equipped to make informed decisions about career choices as well as supported in their first steps towards an exciting career in the growing and thriving digital industry.

To prepare younger students for the digital future, there are also programmes to increase their exposure to coding and building with digital technology such as Code for Fun and Digital Maker.
