Pauline Sim started her banking career serving the Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) segment of the bank, covering banking and financing requirements that SMEs have in early part of her career.
In 2015, she was part of the team that set up The FinLab, a joint venture between UOB Ltd and SGInnovate, to accelerate the best and brightest fintech startups from all over the world looking to set foot in Singapore and capture the ASEAN market. The FinLab’s companies are seeing good success with many of them being recognised at the Singapore FinTech Festival since 2016, and gaining business traction and funding.
In 2018, seeing the need to support the SMEs looking to plug into digital, The FinLab launched Singapore’s first acceleration programme for SMEs. The 11 SMEs that participated did pilots with innovative tech solutions shortlisted by The FinLab. The programme is launched in Thailand and Malaysia in 2019.
