Sunseap Leasing is now one of Singapore's largest clean energy provider, but in 2011, it was just another young start-up in a still-developing market. No one wanted to finance the untested company — until it approached DBS and met Tan Soh Leng and Catherine Tan, the DBS client relationship managers who went to bat for them.
Witness the difficulties they overcame together to bring clean energy to a new audience in Episode 2 of SPARKS, a mini-series by DBS.
