If it’s your first time opening a restaurant, cafe, or stall, where do you start?

Apply for your NEA licence?  Get funding? Start marketing? And how do you do all that?

Attend our F&B Entrepreneur Bootcamp and get some guidance.

It’s a 2-hour crash course on the essentials, conducted in small groups, so you get the most out of the discussion. 

Some things we’ll discuss:

  • NEA Licencing
    Applying for your NEA Food Shop Licence
  • 6 Government grants available for F&B
    More than just the usual PIC and ICV! How to qualify, and how to use them
  • Facebook Marketing
    How to advertise your outlet on Facebook and build a following
  • Financing
    Loans available for new F&B businesses, exclusive packages and services from DBS

We organise bootcamps monthly.

The interaction with the participants and Organisers provided me with lots of great ideas and warned me of the potential pitfalls in running a F&B.

As a first time F&B business owner, iCHEF has shed light on important pointers that are crucial in ensuring a smooth process of getting my first shopfront.
The bootcamp was lighthearted and answered many doubts that I had previously.
It definitely helped a lot that the facilitators were upbeat and welcoming towards queries.
