Rethink. Reinvent. Rebuild. Helping SMEs bounce back stronger.
Never let a good crisis go to waste
We are met with unprecedented challenges caused by COVID-19. While efforts are in place to protect lives and livelihood, SMEs have to take on the new normal. Developing new ways of doing business, understanding the new customer behaviours, and taking advantage of sprouting opportunities and new industries.
Winston Churchill once said during WWII, “never let a good crisis go to waste”. This is a reminder that a crisis is an opportunity to do things you thought you could not do before. For SMEs, take this time to find a balance between what worked before and what needs to happen as you rethink, reinvent and rebuild your business, to thrive in this new normal. As the Best SME Bank in Singapore and Asia, we will stay committed to support you on this journey to bounce back stronger.
