In order to support Hong Kong SMEs, the government has launched a number of funding schemes to help SMEs further build their brands and enhance their competitiveness, including:

 

BUD 專項基金
“Dedicated Fund on Branding, Upgrading and Domestics Sales” (the BUD Fund)

“Dedicated Fund on Branding, Upgrading and Domestics Sales” (the BUD Fund) aims to help SMEs and startup companies seize economic opportunities and enhance competitiveness. In four quarters as of November 2019, a total of 1803 applications were completed, about 80% of the applied companies were approved for funds. Generally, unaccepted applications failed to understand the application qualifications, submitted insufficient documents, selected suppliers or promoted projects that did not meet the requirements, and so on, hence it is best to have an overall company development plan when making the application.
