Mentoring & Skills-based Volunteering
Senior DBS business mentors
We understand how lack of experience, right guidance and contacts can make it difficult for promising enterprises to get off the ground. That’s why in our 50th year as a bank, we made our DBS Mentors’ expert experience available to 50 Social Enterprise partners across the region. The stories of impact through this mentoring exercise are here for you to see - go.dbs.com/50SE
SE Support program
On business area support, our relationship managers with sector expertise in the SME segment are paired with SEs to help them overcome any roadblocks in banking, gain industry insights and seek market access as well as tap into useful networks and connections.
