Peter Ong, chairman of Enterprise Singapore, said Scale-up SG is a specially curated programme which aims to groom high-growth local enterprises into global champions. “The companies, while vastly diverse in terms of revenue size, sectors, business models, exhibit the common trait of hunger and the strong ambition to grow. Leaders learn best from leaders; the diversity of the companies will enrich peer learning, spurring each of them towards even greater growth,” he added.
