The Digital Growth Programme

Helping you embrace technology to boost your business

The Digital Growth Programme (formerly known as eBusiness Club) aims to improve your business and empower you to make the most of every digital opportunity available.

When it comes to information technology, the range of opportunities on offer can appear to be both vast and daunting at the same time. From digital marketing and social media through to eCommerce, it can be all too easy to miss out purely through a lack of knowledge or even confidence.

That’s where we come in. With great digital training, specialist support, strategic action planning workshops, digital consultancy and technology grant funding, we have everything you could possibly need to embrace, understand and use all levels of advanced digital technology to take your business to a greater level of success.

Dynamic workshops and seminars, presented by genuine leaders in their specialist fields

We have formulated an extensive number of high-calibre and engaging seminars, action planning workshops and consultancy support to help you and your business understand and utilise a huge range of advanced technologies and in doing so, improve the performance of your business and the personal development of your staff.

Annual Online Marketing & Technology Expo

First delivered in 2005 the annual Online Marketing & Technology Conference and Expo has established itself as the most cutting edge digital marketing event in the East Midlands. The conference provides an unrivalled forum to hear from renowned speakers as they deliver highly informative, action-packed presentations on the latest digital marketing tools, techniques, tips and tricks.

In addition to the conference we bring together some of the region’s leading technology solution providers. From web develops to business intelligence solution providers, graphic designers, telecoms providers, digital marketing agencies and mobile solution providers the expo provides a unique opportunity to keep up to date with all the latest business technology systems and solutions.

The leading source of independent and impartial advice

The Digital Growth Programme (formerly known as eBusiness Club) is the leading source of independent and impartial advice, with a membership of over 9,000 across the East Midlands and it’s neighbouring counties. Originally launched in 2003 we aim to help UK companies get the most out of today’s digital world through technology systems and online solutions.

Consultancy & Grant-Funding

We know only too well that the effectiveness of any investment in technology relies upon selecting the most appropriate and affordable solution. This along with careful planning, implementation and on-going management can make the difference between success and failure. Many technology systems will fail not because they are not fit for purpose but because of lack of resource in key areas.

We also understand that many businesses are prevented from growing due to a lack of capital investment and qualified advice and support. Our grant funding and consultancy support service exists to help your business make that investment and where appropriate take on specialist consultancy support. You can access the Expression of Interest form for Grant Funding by filling out the registration form, and once your account is verified by our team you can click here to apply. 


Do you provide digital services to SMEs?

The Digital Growth Programme is creating a suppliers register that will focus specifically on digital systems, agencies and software providers. The aim of this service is simple, to help businesses across the East Midlands and its neighbouring counties find the right digital services supplier to meet their often unique needs.

Register your business for the opportunity to promote your services and raise your profile with the region’s leading business support organisation.
