THE LEADING ENTREPRENEUR ACCELERATOR PLATFORM (LEAP) MARKET
According to BURSA, “The LEAP Market complements both the Main Market and ACE Market by addressing the funding gap faced by the SMEs. It also enhances the existing SME funding eco-system and address the over-dependency of these SMEs on financial institutions by providing them access to the capital market.”
While general understanding of the LEAP Market oversimplifies into “SME financing alternative via BURSA”, the requirements and future brought about is much more intricate. Recognising this issue, the SME CEO Forum 2018 aims to bridge this information gap and act as a dissemination platform for parties with the potential to partake, expand and monetise this opportunity. Such efforts will involve pioneer enterprises engaging the LEAP Market, proposed assistance from both public and private sectors and, of course, BURSA Malaysia itself.
