The Brunei Economic Development Board (BEDB) has launched its LEAP (Local Enterprise Applications & Products) grant scheme for 2012 aimed at providing financial assistance to local small and medium enterprises (SMEs), students and researchers to develop prototypes or pilot projects that have innovative technological content, commercial practicality and export potential in both ICT and non-ICT industries. BEDB in collaboration with Coaching Specialist ‘Money Tree’ have conducted a LEAP Business Plan Workshop to assist those eligible to prepare their grant applications. Following this workshop, grant applicants approved by the LEAP Program Committee have to attend Financial and Intellectual Property (IP) Workshops to attain the necessary financial management skills as well as to develop an appreciation of IP and to manage it effectively for innovation and creativity to flourish.
