Launched just recently in September and organized by Unkapt in collaboration with Pennam Partners, small and medium size enterprises (SMEs) operating in Cambodia, Indonesia, Myanmar, Philippines and Vietnam, and who contribute towards sustainable development are all invited to apply for the the inaugural Capital Mobilisation Challenge (CMC)!
Unkapt, a private placement capital raising platform for SMEs seeking to raise debt capital through accredited investors, has organized this challenge aiming to shine more light on SME financial inclusion by helping these businesses to improve their investment readiness level, while simultaneously mobilising investors.
This was highlighted especially as it was discovered that countries in Southeast Asia face a wide spectrum of sustainable development challenges due to their diverse geographic, economic and cultural attributes.
These challenges range from access to clean energy, health services, sustainable economic growth, adequate infrastructure and reliable water and sanitation services. Hence, local SMEs who are actively promoting sustainable development in one of the areas mentioned above and are seeking debt capital, offer proposal and pitching guidance are all encouraged to apply for CMC.
Successful candidates of the competition will get the chance to receive up to USD 50,000 worth in awards that include:
Complimentary investment readiness bootcamp: “Demystifying Private Debt”
Up to USD 10,000 technical assistance grant
Advisory support from Pennam Partners
Application fee waiver and access to the Unkapt platform, which offers embedded deal execution, advanced credit analytics and interactive tools that all work to lower the engagement barrier between the investee and investor
Furthermore, upon access and on boarding to Unkapt, successful applicants will have the opportunity to list and showcase their debt capital raising offer on Unkapt’s platform with the view of facilitating introduction to private debt investors. With this, applicants can boost their funding opportunities, get access to an increasing investors’ pool and eventually maximise their company’s growth.
With an array of attractive rewards and benefits, this challenge will definitely prove to be a great help to any SME that requires the necessary debt capital. So if you’re keen on joining CMC, do apply at https://cmc.unkapt.capital/ now because this exciting challenge will be closing its applications in less than a month!
