Business start-ups and SMEs are considered the backbone of a healthy economy, contributing a source of job creation, diversity, stability and innovation. Yet, they generally have a considerable and unique set of challenges to contend with. With limited finances, tough competition and difficulty in attracting quality talent, they often have to fight fiercely for their survival amongst bigger and more influential players. This is especially true during the first few years of establishment and periods of economic downturn.
