Start Digital is a joint initiative by Enterprise Singapore (ESG) and Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) under the SMEs Go Digital programme. Start Digital was launched in January 2019 to help new SMEs start their business right with foundational and easy-to-deploy solutions. Start Digital is also intended for SMEs that are new to using digital technology.

UOB is an industry partner of the Start Digital initiative.

The Start Digital Pack is intended for SMEs who have just incorporated and/or are just embarking on their digitalisation journey. SMEs can take up any two solutions from the above 6 categories at a lower cost.
