As the first speaker of the evening and Project Head at SME Centre@SICCI, Mr. Rasheed shared insights on the government assistance and schemes available for aspiring entrepreneurs and startups. With Singapore's ecosystem being ranked first in the world for Startup Talent, Mr. Rasheed said, "I had the pleasure of being the first ever SP Jain student speaker at the Alumni Xpressions Talk. The evening had allowed me to share more on the countless resources here in Singapore for entrepreneurs to tap into, such as the SME Centre@SICCI. The centre is always open for discussions and I would strongly encourage business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs to connect with us to discuss the various assistance programs available.”
