Is your business in the digital or Information Technology industry? The Government’s Help to Grow: Digital is now open for applications!
This initiative is part of two complementary programmes (one digital-based, one management-based) designed to help you learn new skills, reach new customers and boost your profits.
Help to Grow: Digital
This programme offers businesses access to free and impartial advice on how technology can help their business. If your business is eligible, you will also get a discount of up to 50 per cent (£5,000) on the costs of approved software.
The plan is to provide vouchers to purchase the software, so long as they help businesses with the following:
- Building client or customer relationships
- Increasing sales
- Managing online accounts and digital finances
- Selling online
All businesses can benefit from this free online advice. However, businesses that are eligible to obtain the vouchers are as follows:
- They are purchasing the discounted software for the first time
- They employ five to 249 employees
- They have been trading for more than 12 months
- They registered at Companies House
Help to Grow: Management
This initiative is an Executive Development programme accredited by the Small Business Charter and provides individual business mentor support. It is a 12-week practical programme with modules in approaches to digital adoption, financial management and strategies for growth and innovation.
