We are discussing this morning on the streamlining of the Pre-Com and Commercialisation fundings.The management, disbursement and monitoring of funds reside in different ministries and agencies; making it difficult to track and monitor the overall performance of these fragmented funding schemes.This of course means that there is a possibility of fund disbursement to similar projects and possibly to the same applicant.Then there are also a number of fund applicants/entrepreneurs being confused as to which funds they should apply for.On a positive note, although the funding landscape is less than ideal, the ministries and related agencies managed to put in place well structured guidelines and SOPs for evaluation, disbursement and monitoring of these funds.However there is still room for improvement.MINDEF (STRIDE)KeTTHA (Green Tech)MOA (AGRO BANK)SCIENCEFUNDMTDC, Biotech Corp, etcTechno/InnoFund etcMGS
